Okra Pickles

r I Love Okra, fried okra, and pickled okra. And love it in soups too. I love growing it and picking it in the garden. I have pickled it before, but this recipe sounds yummy. If you haven't tried it yourself you should try the pickle recipe below. The link to the blog where it is posted is here: Okra Pickles

Okra Pickles

Okra Pickles
3 lbs. okra, whole and about 3” to 4” long
3 c. water
1 c. white vinegar
1/4 c. pickling salt
2 cloves garlic, minced

Wash okra, and pack the okra into hot pint jars.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a medium pot and bring to a boil. Remove mixture from stove and slowly pour over okra into the jars, leaving about 1/2” head space from the top rim of the jar.

Wipe the rims. Put on the hot seal and ring.

Process in boiling water bath for 5 minutes.

Makes 4 pints.
