No help on Okra here but for Beets I always use the one from the Ball blue book. They go great with Hard boiled eggs soaked in the brine
• 3 quarts beets (double recipe if you have more) • 2 C sugar • 2 sticks cinnamon • 1 Tblsp whole allspice • 1/2 Tblsp of whole cloves (I add this is variation of the recipe) • 1 1/2 tsp salt • 3 1/2 cups vinegar (use cider vinegar) • 1 1/2 C water
1.Wash beets, cook beets, peel and quarter beets. 2.Combine everything except beets in large sauce pot. 3.Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. 4.Remove cinnamon sticks. 5.Pack beets into hot jars leaving 1/4″ headspace. 6.Ladle hot liquid over beets leaving 1/4″ headspace. 7.Remove air bubbles, then add lids and bands. 8.Process for 30 minutes in a hot water bath canner.
