Okra is essential to making a good Creole-style gumbo. This method of blanching and freezing okra gives you a product that can go straight from the freezer into your gumbo pot. And because you freeze the okra in a single layer before transferring to a storage container, the pieces stay loose and you can take out just what you need.
