Okra Pickles

A friend gave me a sack of okra. I'm glad because my garden didn't produce anything much this year. I decided to use part of the okra to make some pickles.
Okra Pickles (I made 6 pints)
3 C. vinegar
3 C. water
1/4 C. pickling salt
3 cloves of garlic, halved

Prick each okra pod with a fork. Pack tightly into 6 pint jars. Put a half clove of garlic into each jar. Bring the vinegar, water, and salt to a boil. Fill each jar, put on the lids and process in a water bath for 10 minutes.

They look delicious! Those things cost a small fortune at the grocery store. Great job!

I have never tasted okra pickles and have eaten okra only once in my life....I don't think the frozen okra I had tasted anything like I read you Southerners raving about.Maybe one of these days I will taste good okra. Are the pickles crispy?
