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.
