Well it's been awhile since I last put a post up, but I'm back and geared up for summertime canning.
First, you start off by getting about 5 lbs or more of smaller size Okra. Fill your sink up with cold water, add okra and baking soda.
Then rewash. If you're wandering about the baking soda, it's a cheap cleaner that works great. It pulls all the pollen and sand off the vegatable before beginning.
Next, give your Jars and lids a hot water bath and trim the ends to the Okra.
In a large saucepan combine vinegar, water, mustard seeds, pickling salt, celery seeds. Bring to a rapid boil.
Meantime pack the hot jars with peeled garlic, peppercorns and okra; making sure the okra is tightly packed.
Wait two weeks for okra to set and enjoy!!!!
