When canned like this it 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 ½” of head space. Wipe jars and seal. Process for 40 minutes.
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.
