Use Okra a second time?

JAJameson2010JAJameson2010 Posts: 123Registered Users
I just made my first 2 batches of okra gel last night. Batch #1 was awesome! Haven't tried my Batch #2 yet.

Can I refreeze and use the okra again? Or should I start with new ones next time? Although rate the 16 cups of gel may last me years... LOL

    I wouldn't freeze cooked vegetables, it would turn to mush and not be too hygienic.
    2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

    CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
    Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
    Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
    Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
    Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
    Experimenting with: benign neglect

    I'd thought it would be a snap to come and find a recipe for okra gel but for some reason I'm not finding one. Your thread came up as one of 6 search results for the word okra...could you post your recipe for the gel you mentioned in your OP please? I'd really appreciate it.
