Pickled Okra

Okra 9-1-11

The okra continues to share it’s seed pods for our consumpution. 

   Sometimes I only get enough okra for a couple of jars; so here is a scaled down recipe.  For pickled okra I only use small pods since they are more tender than the larger ones; those I slice and save for fried okra. (The photo above shows large pods on the left and small pods on the right.) 
   A little tip for ya:  I’ve found that if I make too much vinegar mixture I can just place it in jar and  keep in the fridge for a couple of days till I need it. 
    This is also the same recipe I use to dill pickle cucumbers, and other vegetables.  Simple and somewhat quick to do. :O)


2 c. apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. water
1/2 or 1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. dill seed
1 large clove garlic cut in half or two small
Enough okra to fill 2 pint jars

Heat the vinegar and water in a enamel pot; add the salt and dissolve completely.
In the jars: add dill seed, 1 piece of garlic and then okra.  Top this off with one garlic clove.  Fill jars with the hot liquid.   Place warmed lid on jar and then ring and tighten.  Place in boiling water bath for 15 minutes.  Remove and sit aside to cool.
