I know they will be tough if I try to cook them normally, but hate to waste them, probably 25 or 30 pods.
Anyone have any recipies that might salvage them, either to 'tenderize' them or whatever! Thanks in advance for any help!
I made an account here just so I could post that the recipe didn't work, for any people like me that stumble upon it from a keyword search with the highest of hopes for tenderizing old, oversized okra. Alas, the recipe smelled great, but the okra was tough as wood chips. I wanted to provide feedback for others who might want to give it a try (don't). I slow simmered the okra it per the recipe and then additionally slow cooked it on high for several hours, but it was inedible. I got a big E for effort from my significant other, but overall would have preferred to not waste the onion and tomato (or my time). I will certainly try the recipe again with younger, edible okra.
