How to make it

  • Wash okra and place on paper towels to dry.
  • Sterilize five or six pint sized canning jars with lids and rings. (Follow jar manufacturer’s directions for sterilizing.)
  • Place washed, dried okra, sliced garlic, and fresh pepper in jars until jars are full. (It helps to alternate okra, one stem up and one stem down.)
  • Place vinegar, water pickling salt and celery seed in a large sauce pan and bring to a rapid boil.
  • Boil mixture 3-4 minutes and immediately (while still boiling) pour over okra, garlic and peppers.
  • Make sure contents of each jar are completely submersed in the hot liquid.
  • Tightly seal each jar. Allow to cool, then wash/rinse the outside of each jar and dry.
  • Let stand 3 weeks before serving. Pickled okra can be stored on pantry shelf.
  • Refrigerate before serving.

    I love pickled okra It is soooo good!! Every other recipe I find on the internet (and library canning books) call for water bath to process.. Your recipe doesn't mention this and I was wondering why? I only harvest enough to make a quart at a time so if this step is not necessary it would be great for me.

    Love that pickled okra! My 10 year old granddaughter is a fan too. If you don't watch her she sneaks off with the whole jar and my grandson will eat all the cornbread.I reckon they've been raised right.Makes a body proud.Yes I am a true southerner too.

    I came across this recipe when I was looking for picked okra and I waited until after they were made and tried before I came back to rate. You deserve more than a 5, they are superb! I just had to stop by to tell you how good these are. I was very impressed with the flavor. I didn't think I would like them but made them for my boyfriend because he loves them. The jar we opened last night, is now empty. I loved them too!

    Wow! My grandmother used to make something similar to this. Brings back memories. Canning seems to be a lost art in this world of fast food. She even used to have a *root cellar* where she kept everything she had canned for the winter. Obviously she wasn't from Florida, lol. I think I was the only grandchild that loved okra. Got any recipes for fried? Great post!
