This is a true southern treat. They are crispy and have a good zesty flavor.
- 2 lbs small fresh okra
- 9 small fresh hot peppers, your choice
- 9 garlic cloves
- 3 tablespoons dill seeds
- 4 cups white vinegar (5% acidity)
- 4 cups water
- 1⁄2 cup salt
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- Pack okra in 9 hot jars filling to 1/2 inch from top.
- Place 1 hot pepper, 1 garlic clove, and 1 teaspoon dill into each jar.
- Bring the vinegar and remaining 3 ingredients to a boil; pour over the okra filling to 1/2 inch from the top. Remove any air bubbles.
- Wipe the jar rims and cover at once with the metal lids and screw-on bands.
- Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
I made this with apple cider vinegar, and maybe the acidity was too high. I certainly looked forward to the pickled okra, but they were too strong. This was my first batch of pickling anything. Maybe with next year's crop I'll do better with a different vinegar.
Great and low cal.
I did leave out the peppers, I don't really like spicey things but this turned out beautiful!! Easy Easy Easy. I will save this one.
