Spicy pickled okra

By August 26, 2013No Comments

Having a choice between regular okra and red okra at the farmers’ market Saturday, I elected to go off the beaten path and bought two bins of small, red okra. Okra is not my most favorite veggie; in fact, I will cook it in gumbo or she crab soup but I just don’t eat it. But, I have a couple of friends who love the stuff pickled and spicy. So, today I made seven pint jars of okra. Pickling spicesSpicy Pickled OkraSpicy Pickled Red Okra
