Default any use for oversized okra ?

A friend gave me about ten lbs of okra but at least half of it was left on the plant to long. its 6 + inches long and 2 inches thick.
mine always gets woody if left to long. Any way to process it to make it edible.I plan to pickle the small stuff...will that work on the big stuff? I dont want to throw it in the compost unless i have no choice

Im not trying to be a smart-butt, but Ive seen them in floral arrangements. Cut the stem with the okra pod after it has dried and spray paint them gold or another color. Or take the pods and after painting put them on wreaths. Just a thought.

Let them get completely dry and then harvest the seed for next year.

Roast the seeds like coffee beans. Makes a decent coffee substitute, I'm told. Especially if you mix just a little real coffee with it.

Get a talk show, and then influence how people vote in an election.

Fried Okra

10 pods okra, sliced in 1/4 inch pieces
1 egg, beaten
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup vegetable oil

In a small bowl, soak okra in egg for 5 to 10 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, salt, and pepper.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge okra in the cornmeal mixture, coating evenly. Carefully place okra in hot oil; stir continuously. Reduce heat to medium when okra first starts to brown, and cook until golden. Drain on paper towels.
