Do you blanch okra before putting it in the oven at a low temperature for ten hours to dry it for crafts? I am going to make okra angels and the okra has already been picked off the vine.

No need to blanch it. Drying - Dry in a dehydrator 4 to 6 hours or 6 to 10 hours in an oven on a low setting. Good luck.
Don't know about drying okra, but I'd like the instructions for okra angel please. I love angels!

You don't need to blanch it. Some people store it in a shed to dry
How to dry, or prepare okra, for a Christmas craft?
You can dry the okra, cut in half, cut in circles or left whole. First wash the okra and pat dry with a towel. Put your okra in a large bowl and add salt and cayenne pepper. Toss the okra to coat the okra. Normally this will dry in 12 to 18 hours depending on the dehydration period and the size of the okra.
I poke holes in them and get all the moisture out as I can... leave them out to dry.
