What About Pickled Okra?

When I published my post about southern foods a couple of days ago, I was quick to add fried okra to the list.

My daughter then reminded me of pickled okra, and my mouth began to water. Okra, when pickled properly presents the palate with a profusion of exquisite flavors. I’m no pickler, but I sure appreciate the artistry of a good one.

Is pickled okra something you’ve tasted? Is it primarily a Southern dish? Are there pickled foods, other than cucumbers, that you eat?

Speaking of which, I was a young adult before I realized the connection between cucumbers and pickles. In fact, I might’ve argued to the contrary, maintaining that pickles were their own category of vegetable. It wasn’t my proudest moment.

Here’s an article about pickles and how to pickle just about anything other than yesterday’s socks.

Now, I need to go shopping. My mouth is still watering.

Peace, people!

  1. I’ve mentioned the slime associated with okra before, but not sure if that was here or another blog. I would do fried, or pickled as well if an expert could assure me that there would be no slime whatsoever.
    Mostly I stick with cucumbers, but my daughter has tried other veggies like carrots and cauliflower. They were okay, but head had a hard time accepting them as “pickles.”

  2. I saw okra in the shop once, but had no idea what it was good for and didn’t buy any. Pickled mushrooms could be delicious if you know a good recipe. My father created his own recipe, shared with no one. The mushrooms were divine. Myself, I pickled OK mushrooms, cucumbers, shallot onions, and a mix of broccoli, bell peppers and carrots – this had to be consumed within two weeks. I used to be a good cook since my mother only knew how to cook some 3-4 simple dishes. Her unmarried sister used to live with us and cook for us until I grew up enough to forage for myself 🙂

    1. I need to try pickled mushrooms! You’re the second person to mention them. My mom was a great cook, but she never did any pickling or canning. And either she was a lousy teacher or I was a lousy student, but I never really learned to cook well.

      1. I learned to cook because I had to eat 🙂 Then I discovered a cookbook and fell in love. My daughter didn’t have any interest in cooking until her mother-in-law gave her a family cookbook. I think, it works this way: one cook in the kitchen.
