Today, I'd like to share a simple pickled okra recipe. Okra is not a common ingredient in Korea. I never had okra before I move to US.
But I wanted to eat more after I learned about how great okra is.
Even Cleopatra ate them. Well if she, the legend of beauty ate it, There must be something really good in it.
However, you know....the problem.
The solution is to pickle okra.
Although pickled okra still has slime in it, the crunchiness and sourness makes it taste so much better. You will enjoy the popping okra seed too.
I used allrecipe as a reference.
Okra : 340g=12oz
Dried Thai pepper : 2
Dill or pickling spices : 1tsp
Water : 1cup
Vinegar : 1/2 cup
Salt : 1Tbs
Our local grocery store carries Hawaiian okra.(from Donquijote)
Please wear disposable or rubber glove when you wash okra.
It has little spines which will be softer once you pickle them.
Put them in a jar with pickling spices(or dill) and Thai pepper.
Boil water+vinegar+salt mixture.
Pour boiling hot liquid over okra and close the lid.
As you see, I used wrong size of Jar but it's ok.
Before the bottle cools down, turn the jar up side down.
After the bottle cools down(approximately two hours later)
Store them in the refrigerator and eat them the next day.
It only took 10~15min and was very delicious.
Even without sugar, okra has natural sweet taste in it. Just amazing.
If you are thinking of trying okra but hesitating because of the texture,
Please try this recipe and let me know how you like.
You will be the first person who sees my new post.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
