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

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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Divide okra, garlic, and dill evenly among 4 (1-pint) jars.

Step 2

Combine vinegar and remaining ingredients in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute or until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes. Carefully pour vinegar mixture into jars, leaving about 1/4 inch at top. Seal jars; refrigerate 3 days before serving.

I used the okra from my garden, and I loved it. I saw the other recipe, and now I will try that one.

We are lucky to be able to get farmers market fresh okra. For us, the recipe had just the right amount of spice. I have never seen purple okra but taste is what really counts, so this is a very good recipe.

I was interested in trying this recipe because it uses red wine vinegar. It was OK, but I like the CL pickled okra recipe from 2005 better. So, I'll stick with that recipe instead of this one.
