This yield 2cups of okra gel. I then add kathymack' s portions for the preservatives and 1/4+1/8tsp of agave nectar, 1/4tsp mag flakes, 1/2 tsp of sucragel. Too chicken to try grapeseed oil..lol"

A few of the preservatives you can use are potassium sorbate, Germall, or Optiphen available here:

I will keep most of mine in the fridge or freezer, but probably keep small portions out that I will be able to use up in a week or two.
