I love to grow okra and am always looking for creative ways to preserve vegetables from my garden. These pickled okras are best served chilled. The recipe makes 3 pint jars. This recipe can also be found at gardengirlrecipes.com.



3 pints (about 1 pound) small okras

6 cloves garlic

3 teaspoon dill seed

3 whole jalapeño peppers

2 cups vinegar

½ cup water

4 tablespoons salt

Step 1: Wash Okra

Wash okra and trim.

Step 2: Prepare Vinegar Mixture

Combine the vinegar, water and salt. Boil until the salt is dissolved.

Step 3: Add Jalapeños, Garlic, & Spice to Jars

Add 1 jalapeños sliced, 2 garlic cloves cut in half, and 1 teaspoon dill seed into each jar.

Step 4: Pack Okra in Jars

Pack the okra into the jars.

Step 5: Pour Vinegar Mixture & Seal Jars

Pour the vinegar mixture into each jar. Leave ¼ inch head space in each jar and add the lids/rings.

Step 6: Process in Water Bath

Process in a water bath for 10 minutes. Adjust the time for elevation, if needed.

<p>Off the subject.</p><p>Can you safely use a pressure canner on a flat to p stove?</p><p>I have herad both and I would love to ask help finding some real data.</p>
<p>awesome work</p>
<p>I'm new to pickling and I've only picked onions, carrots and tried my hand at cucumbers once. I really want to try this out but what does &quot;Process in a water bath for 10 minutes&quot; mean?</p>
<p>look up ball canning they have all the processes. Water bath heats up the jars to create a vaacum to help the jars seal. Also kills the nasties in the process. </p>
<p>There are two safe methods of canning, the boiling water bath method and the pressure canner method. The boiling water method basically consists of filling a large pot with water, boiling the water, and then carefully lowering the filled jars into the canning pot for a water bath.
