I loved pickled okra as a kid. It was a strange treat dad would buy every so often, but as I grew up I kind of forgot about it. Then, last week, I saw some fresh organic okra at my local market… and I had to go for it. I’d never pickled anything before and was a little intimidated as I sat down to figure it out. But it’s really easy, like whipping up a marinade. If you plan on making a large batch for long-term storage, you definitely want to follow proper canning procedures… but my batch of this Garlic Dill Pickled Okra didn’t last more than a couple of days!
