RE: Freezing battered okra
The best way that I have found is to slice your okra on to a cookie sheet and place in freezer several hours until firm. Then place into freezer bags. I don't blanch mine, just wash it and let it dry thouroughly before freezing. Then, when you are ready to serve,just put cornmeal and flour and seasonings into your freezer bag and coat your okra and fry. I like to freeze enough during the summer so I have it to use during the winter. I also use this in my vegetable soup ( unbreaded , of course).
