Yield: 4 quarts
When the okra has been canned using this method, this fried okra tastes just like fresh okra from the garden in the middle of winter.
Place all ingredients in a pot on stove and bring to a boil and then turn heat off, you do not want to cook the okra.
Heat lids and jars for canning per normal canning guidelines.
Fill jars to within 1/2" of head space and seal.
Turn upside down and leave for 2 days.
When you are ready to fry, dump the jar of okra into a strainer, do not rinse. Take the okra and toss in cornmeal and fry as normal.
