Michael Jordan's One Day Pickle

  • Yield: 1 pound. pickled okra


  • 1 pound okra, split in half lengthwise
  • 6 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rice wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced onions


  • Toss the okra with 3 tablespoons kosher salt and let it sit in a colander for 1 hour over the sink to drain. Combine the vinegar, water, remaining salt, sugar, peppercorns, and mustard seeds in a nonreactive pot. When the okra has drained for 1 hour, rinse it thoroughly and let it drain. Bring the liquid mixture (brine) to a boil, and boil for 2 minutes. Place the okra and the onions in a nonreactive storage container, and pour the hot liquid over it. Stir occasionally until it cools, and refrigerate overnight. Will keep for 1 month in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
