Pickling experiments

okraA friend of mine asked me the other day if I had ever made pickled okra. I said I hadn’t and he offered me some okra to give it a try.

Okra is one of those funny foods. People either love it or hate it. I love it fried or in a gumbo. This week I read a really great article about eating raw okra, but I just don’t think I’m that brave.To be honest, I’m not even sure I’m brave enough to eat it pickled, but I wanted to try it since my friend gave me the okra. I recently made a Sriracha pickle that was really good and my friend said he thought that might be good with the okra so that’s what I did.Since the okra skin is very thick I’m thinking they need to sit a while and pickle.My friend also gave me an entire bag of fresh banana peppers so I thought, what the heck, let’s pickle those too. I also think these need to sit a while before we give them a try.

All kind of pickles!
