  • 1 to 1.5 pounds okra
  • 1/4 cup sea salt
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • few pieces of fresh dill
  • additional whole coriander seeds and peppercorns to add on top


  • Wash your okra.
  • In a large bowl dissolve your sea salt in the water, using a spoon to stir.
  • Grind up all the dry ingredients (coriander, mustard seeds, peppercorns, bay leaves). You can use a mortar/pestle, rolling pin or coffee grinder to grind them up.
  • Put the okra in either (2) 32 ounce size jars, or (1) 64 ounce jar.
  • Put the minced garlic in the jars, then ground up spices, then pour the salt water mixture on top. If you are using 2 jars, divide everything in half. If you have any water left, disregard it.
  • Add a few pieces of fresh dill on top.
  • Add in a couple of whole coriander seeds and peppercorns on top.
  • Make sure the okra is completely covered in water and close the jar. Shake it!
  • Put in the refrigerator. Let them sit for at least 3 days before eating.
  • Enjoy!


Recipe note: For crunchy okra, add 1/4 teaspoon Ball Pickle Crisp Granules at the end.
