I finally picked enough okra to make okra pickles.

First I made the brine. Combine the following and bring to a boil.

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups vinegar
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 2 tsp dill seed
  1. Sterilize your pint jars and put in as many as you can of the washed okra.

  2. Add 1-3 garlic cloves per jar.

  3.  Pour the hot brine over the okra leaving 1/2 inch headspace.

  4. Put  the lids on the jars  and place sealed jars in boiling water bath.

  5. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes.

  6. Take out jars and let them sit for 24 hours before storing.

  7. In about 60 days they will be ready to eat.

If you wish add one small hot pepper to each jar.

Have you ever canned green beans? My french co-worker says his grandma made the best canned green beans. I asked if they were pickled and he said no.
