Pickled Okra

Pickled Okra

Ingredients

Instructions

Bring the vinegar and pickling salt to a boil.

Drop a few garlic cloves and 2 hot peppers.

Pack the jar with orka. I was able to get about 35 pods in each jar. The stems should come up to about 1/2-inch of the top of the jar. Slip a couple of fresh dill leaves down between the okra.

Place the jar in a large bowl and ladle in the hot pickling liquid. Fill the jar until the stems are covered. Leave 1/4-inch of head room between the liquid and the top of the jar.

Screw on a lid.

The jars need to be processed in a hot water bath. Make sure there is enough water to cover the lids and that the jars are not touching. Boil for 15 minutes.

Remove the jars from the hot bath with tongs. As they cool down you want to hear the jar lid pop. That means they are tightly sealed.
