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.
