Grandma Oma always made these, and I still do. They are a welcome change on a relish tray.

These were easy and fast and a great way to save summer okra. The only thing I did differently was add one whole clove of garlic but they came out fabulous! Read More

I didn't bother with the hot water bath as I knew they wouldn't last very long. I just put them in sterile mason jars. I think the recipe needs to be a little more specific about what vinegar to use. I used a combination of white distilled (for the twang), apple cider (for the mellowness) and white balsamic (LOVE the flavor). I think you need to play around with it until you find the particular flavor that you like. I would still probably just buy my regular jarred pickled okra, but this was a fun thing to try for a change. Thanks! Read More

My boyfriend a Louisiana boy loved these but said he would have preferred them without the red pepper. Read More

I've canned this recipe twice last fall and again early this summer when there was plenty of fresh tender young okra available. Many people don't know but okra is excellent for the digestive system. 'this recipe is fantastic garnish to a hearty winter meal of greens beans jambalaya or your favorite stew. I have only one suggestion which came from my aunt to add a level teaspoon of sugar (or less if you prefer) to each packed jar before adding the hot vinegar mixture. This doesn't change the pickled or spicy flavor to sweet but just mellows the exciting flavor. Interestingly people who say they generally don't like okra love these pickled treats. Read More

This is great and oh so easy! I liked the added garlic clove to the jar. I didn't have dried red pepper on hand so I added 1 tsp red pepper flakes to each jar. Read More

My original recipe calls for the vinegar to be 1/2c white 1/2c apple cider. I also us dill seed instead of dill flake. Then directly in each jar goes 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes 1 garlic clove and 1 tsp-1tbsp sugar Read More

I absolutely love pickled okra and these came out perfectly! Maybe my jars were a little too large, but I found that this recipe was only good for two jars instead of three, but it's so easy to make, it was no real problem to adjust. Read More

We loved this recipe. It turned out great. We added some garlic cloves and sliced jalepanos instead of dried red pepper flakes. Will definitely make again and again and again Read More

Someone from church gave us some Okra and I had never eaten okra in my life. I went searching for a creative way to use it that my kids might also eat. This is it!!! The recipe is super quick and easy, even for novice canners. I did not add the peppers and put one galic clove in each jar. My two year old can not eat them fast enough. Who knew Okra could taste so good? You have got to try it! Read More
