What to do with vacation okra

travelmad478 | Aug 26, 2014 11:47 AM

I left town for two weeks, put my neighbor in charge of the garden harvest, and came back to nearly 3 pounds of okra that's so huge (we're talking 8-12 inches long here) and woody that it's inedible by any normal cooking method. I can stew the heck out of it but it'll probably disintegrate entirely by the time it gets soft enough to chew. Can I do *anything* with it, or do I just toss it out? I'm sad, because this year's okra crop is my best ever, and it pains me to see it wasted.
