I pickled okra!


I pickled some okra for Fourth of July. I used the recipe from Homesick Texan, more or less. Okra is not at all common in Sweden, but was easy enough to find. However, I don't really care for it. Per likes it, at least in pickled form, but I doubt we'll be making this again.

Uncooked okra is a good thickener for soups and stews. Just cut it up and add it to the pot while the rest of the ingredients simmer. Also it's good if you slice it up, dip the pieces in a simple batter and fry in a skillet along with some similarly prepared green tomatoes.

Can't say I'm a huge fan of okra but I did have it in Texas. I bought a little at a middle eastern shop during the spring. Didn't make me jump up and down, rather one of those "ok, now I've tried it!"
The shop had pickled ones.
