I had my first taste of pickled okra while visiting my Brother & Sister N Law in Arkansas. It tasted so good, I asked her if she would share the recipe, and she gladly oblighed. It was crisp tender, a slight amount of heat from the peppers and a great garlic flavor. Although I had never made pickled okra, I was confident that I could. I was fortunate enough to get it fresh picked and delivered to my brothers house directly from the farm. I packed it in bags on ice and brought it back to Chicago, & canned 26 jars, & they look amazing. I can't wait for the flavors to marry so I can taste it.
