Easy Pickled Okra Recipe: The Best Southern Pickled Okra Recipe

Don't be surprised when in the south you see a bowl of pickled okra on the table instead of pickles at dinner or lunch. Pickled okra is definitely a southern thing.

Crisp and acidic, this pickled okra recipe is super easy to make. If you plan on storing the okra, sterilize the jars and process them 10 minutes in boiling water after filling.

Pickled okra is often served with fried chicken, pork chops, sandwiches and barbecued meats. Try them chopped up in chicken salad, egg salad or tuna salad. Pickled okra makes a great gift, too!
