I loved pickled okra as a kid! It was some strange treat dad would buy every so often, but as I grew up I kind of forgot about it. Then, last week, I spy 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, you definitely want to follow proper canning procedures… but my batch didn’t last more than a couple of days! You can use this recipe to pickle cucumbers, too, just sub two large cucumbers. Some other great pickling items include cabbage (for sauerkraut), asparagus, beets, carrots, cauliflower, pearl onions, ginger, and even mangoes and limes.
