Default Pickled okra ???

Can anyone give me a recipe/teach me how to pickle okra ?

My grandkids are having a ball picking okra and squash, lol.

But all I know to do with it is fry it.

Dont get me wrong, I love it that way but the grand kids love it pickled (they've ate some at restaurants). Heck, it's hard to keep em from eating it raw!

I like pickled too, just never done it.

Any info/advice is appreciated.

The only way I eat okra that is not deep fried or in gumbo is a light saute and a little soy sauce.

Eats fine that way with some rice.

Slice thin like you are going to fry, Sauté in olive oil or butter with onions or chives and garlic, Very good.

Slice lengthwise in half. Put cut side up on plate. Sprinkle with Tony's. Microwave for a minute and a half. Quick, easy, clean and GOOD!

No thanks, bad childhood memories of my dad making me try it. I'm not picky by any standard but you have to draw the line somewhere.

LOL. Reminds me of working for the prison. Some inmates loved it. Some ran from it like the plague.

Very similar to pickles.. equal parts white vinegar and water, normally 2 cups of each will do 4-6 jars. In the bottom of the jar put 3 fresh garlic cloves, 1-2 sprigs of dill, 7-10 pepper corns, pinch of red pepper flakes. Before adding okra to jars wash good then poke each with a fork 1-2x. Add your water/vinegar to a pot. For each cup of vinegar/water i add 1/4 table spoon of sugar and 1 tablespoon of pickling salt. Bring the solution to boil then fill jars to top, seal up wait a week and enjoy!

What? No mention of grilled okra in this thread? Besides fried, this is the next best thing. Coat with oil, salt, and throw it on a grill. Good eats!

This also works good in oven. 425 for 15 minutes or until slightly browned. When I first heard about it was skeptical, but now this is the way we eat it mostly, easy to prepare and very tasty.

Sorry, No help on pickling recipe.

I have a hard time getting enough okra to pickle because my son usually picks them and eats them straight of the stalk as well.

I used to pickle okra but I can't find my recipe. I love eating pickled okra. I can eat just about anyway you can fix it. I like okra and tomatoes cooked together.

When you pick them for pickled okra, make sure you pick them small, no more than 3" long. YUM

This for sure. I have a tendency to pick the way to early because I like the small single bite size.

I canned my first batch of pickled okra and green beans 2 weeks ago. Followed the youtube recipe at the top.
Tried a jar yesterday and they were outstanding! I am now hooked on this and going down a pickling rabbit hole.

I am not real sure what this is or what you mean but it does not sound very good.


But send the results so we know what you are cooking up.

Put in a ziploc with some olive oil and sprinkle with Tony's, grill over direct heat. Or wrap in foil with oil, butter and Tony's then just drop it on the coals.

Stew it with some diced tomatoes and onions and sliced sausage. Add a little pickle juice it helps make it not as slimy.

I like to pickle a few jalapeno peppers in each jar of okra. Gives it a little spicy kick.

It came out great, I don't have my recipe handy.
I used mason jars and the mason jar airlocks.
Ferminted about 10 days.
I used bottled water (no chlorine) and add salt .
The old time way was enough dissolved salt to float an egg, I didn't user that much salt.
Some onion, garlic and a grape leaf (grape leaves are loaded with good yeast).
We ate them pretty quick so I dont know how long they last in the icebox
