The first way we cut off the ends and discard them (actually we feed them to the ducks and chickens). Then slice the okra and put them on the dehydrator trays.
Let them dehydrate overnight or for 8-10 hours. Remove and store in a glass mason type jar. These can be thrown into a soup, stew or into gumbo.
The other way like to dehydrate okra is to make an okra snack. Just rinse your okra well and dip each pod into a bowl of vinegar. Shake off the excess and place the whole pieces of okra onto the dehydrator tray. Now take some paprika and sprinkle it over the pods generously.
