Default Use Okra a second time?

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.

Default small batch recipe for okra gel

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.
