Spicy Pickled Okra

If you're lucky enough to find purple okra, use it solo or in combination with standard green pods—but know that the longer the pickling time, the less vibrant the color. Serve on a relish tray, with sandwiches in place of pickle spears, or as a bloody Mary garnish. A jar makes a unique hostess gift.

Yield: About 4 cups (serving size: 1/3 cup)
