How would I dry Okra? I am told to do it on the vine, but do I just stop watering, do I pull it and hang upside down. When dried they make beautiful little angels for the Christmas tress. Saw some at a Craft show, but didn't get to ask the lady who had them about drying, she only said had to dry on the plant.
