Okra Ideas - Grown for the first time

trouttaxi Aug 16, 2012 01:17 PM

Out of work permantly due to 3 open heart surgeries 2 mechanical valves and now a pacemaker so I am totally bored and beside myself. So I figured I would take up canning How difficult can it really be? Well I guess I just found out I went to a summer outing last yr and had pickled okra OMG I couldn't get enough so I convinced my husband to grow it and , I have quit a bit.....Unfortunately my batch tasted horrible.....Looking for someone with canning knowledge to guide me....

        Cut it in 1/4 inch rounds add a little oil and broil it ti it starts to brown.
