Candied okra recipe?

I am hoping someone can give me information on a recipe for candied, or sugared, okra. This is not pickled okra, but more like a sweet, chewy confection, similar to candied citrus peel. Any ideas or suggestions are very welcome. Thanks

Dear mydogjack,

All I have to say is -

I did a search and couldn't come up with ANYTHING! The only thing I can think of is to cut it in half, scrape seeds out, and put in sugar water like you do candied orange peels. :confused:

Maybe someone else will have your answer. If you find a recipe please share it - (I think ;) )

You might have something here!

Hi kitchenelf!

You just might be on to something. I never gave it a thought to open up the okra and take out the seeds. I haven't seen the finished product myself, so I can't be sure, but this sounds like a real possibility. I will definitely check into this. Thank you so-o-o-o-o much!!!:D :D :D
