Field Notes

Dehydrated Okra

One of the most underrated fall vegetables is Okra. While it may be difficult to get past the "slimy" texture of cooked Okra, one way to work around it is by dehydrating it.

Sprinkled with a little Chili Salt, these become a crunch delicious snack - that's much healthier than potato chips! You can make it two ways - in your oven - or if you have one, a dehydrator.

 

Ingredients

2 cups Okra

1 teaspoon Piri Piri Chili Salt

Directions

Oven: Spread okra out on a clean baking sheet, and lightly sprinkle with salt. Bake at 170° for 6-7 hours, or until dry and crisp.

Dehydrator: Dry okra for 12 hours at 130°, and then sprinkle with salt.
