Tender young pods of okra pickled with garlic, dill seed and whole peppercorns.
Prepare jars, rings and lids according to standard canning procedure.
Into the sterile jars, pack as many pods of okra as possible with the tips pointing up. To each jar add 1 whole garlic clove, 1 teaspoon of canning salt, 1 teaspoon of dill seed and 1/4 teaspoon of whole peppercorns. Finish packing the jars as much as possible with additional okra, tips down, fitting the pods in tightly but take care not to crush the okra.
Bring the vinegar and water to a boil. Then pour the boiling mixture into your jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the rim.
Place lids and rings on jars and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
Remove jars from the canner and allow them to cool completely. Let the pickles sit for about a month to achieve the best flavor.
If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
