A third way to deal with an okra surplus is to pickle the pods. Substitute okra for beans in your favorite "dilly bean" recipe . . . combine the pods with pickled hot peppers . . . or use the following recipe: Pack three and a half pounds of okra into hot, sterilized jars. Make a brine consisting of one pint of white distilled vinegar, one quart of water, one-third cup of salt, and two teaspoons of dill seed. Bring the brine to a boil, then pour the hot solution over the okra, leaving 1-1/2 inches of air space in the lop of each jar. Finally, seal the jars, process them for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath, and store them for several weeks before opening.
