    Default MYO: Pickled Okra

    Pickled Okra
    (makes 6 half pints)

    1 pound baby okra (3 - 4 inches long)
    6 garlic cloves, peeled
    3 cups white or cider vinegar
    1 cup water
    1/2 tsp dried red pepper flakes-OPTIONAL
    1 tbsp dried dill weed
    2 tbsp dill seeds
    1 tbsp mustard seeds
    1 1/2 tbsp kosher salt
    1 tbsp sugar

    1. Tightly pack jars with okra, stem ends up, then put 1 garlic
    clove in each prepared and steralized jar.

    2. Bring remaining ingredients to a boil in a 2-quart nonreactive
    saucepan, stirring until sugar and salt are dissolved.

    3. Divide pickling liquid evenly among jars, leaving 1/4-inch
    space at top, then run a thin knife between okra and jar.

    4. Wipe off rims of filled jars with a clean damp kitchen towel,
    then firmly screw on lids with screw bands.

    5. Put sealed jars on rack in canner or pot and add enough hot
    water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, covered.

    6. Boil pickles, covered, 10 minutes, then transfer jars with
    tongs to a towel-lined surface to cool. Jars will seal (if you hear
    a ping, that signals that the vacuum formed at the top has made
    the lid concave).

    7. After jars have cooled 12 to 24 hours, press center of each
    lid to check that it's concave, then remove screw band and try to
    lift lid with your fingertips. If you can't, the lid has a good seal.
    Let pickled okra stand in jars at least 1 day for flavors to develop.

    I SO agree!!
    Plus I read a bit back that pickled products are or make probiotics...a really big thing on the new Paleo diet concept. Although I'm not following it, some of what I've actually read about it makes pretty good sense.
