    Hi Ronke,

    Where can I get prepacked jute leave.

    I live in South Africa and Im missing ewedu.
    If I get the local one from Nigeria and dry it, how long can it keep in the freezer if I store it?

    Can I also get prepacked okro too?

      Do you know a local Indian food store? they often sell it. it might be sold as molokhia. Yes, you can also get frozen okra. unfortunately I haven’t tried storing it, but I don’t see why it shouldn’t last for months if there is constant electricity.
