  • Okra can be stored in the refrigerator in paper bags in the vegetable compartment. When you are ready to prepare the okra for cooking, remove it from the fridge and bring it up to room temperature first. Pat the okra dry before cutting/slicing. By bringing the okra to room temperature before cooking aids in less moisture yielding when cooked.
  • The cutting and slicing of okra varies from one household to the next and from one part of the world to the other. Okra can be cut into rounds, they can be sliced lengthways or be cut diagonally. Of course, you can opt to leave the okra whole.
