Okra Pickles
Recipe Type: Pickle, Side
Prep Time: 
Cook Time: 
  • 2 large garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 or 2 small dried or fresh chile peppers
  • 1 tsp dill seeds
  • 1 quart (about 1 pound) fresh small okra pods, stems trimmed
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp pickling salt
  1. Put garlic, chiles and dill seeds into your quart jar. Pack the okra into the jars.
  2. In a saucepan, bring to a boil the vinegar, water and salt, stirring to dissolve the salt.
  3. Ladle the hot liquid over the okra, leaving ½ inch head-space, but making sure the okra is fully submerged.
  4. Store the jars in the fridge for at least three weeks.
The most wonderful discovery while making these: okra is the PERFECT shape to pack into a mason jar for pickling. It doesn't fight you, just slides perfectly in next to its friends for its vinegar bath.
