This was a simple, easy to follow recipe, but I think salt needs to be added.The end results came out fantastic, but lacked flavor.

My husband and I grow okra and we have a lot of it right now. You can only eat fried okra so many times so this is a great recipe to help me use it up. They are still in the standing stage but I know they are going to make great pickles. Thanks for the recipe.
