You know summer is here when the Farmer’s Market in Marion Square in downtown Charleston is brimming with locals as well as visitors.  Everyone carries baskets brimming with fresh fruits and veggies and brightly colored flowers and herbs from farms surrounding our beloved Low Country.

Our find this weekend? Okra and more Okra.

My friend and past neighbor, John Taylor of Hoppin’ John’s, shared an easy (and I do mean easy) and delicious pickled okra recipe.  This one comes from his Hoppin John’s Charleston, Beaufort, and Savannah Dining at Home in The Low Country cookbook.  It’s a classic.

Now on to pickling perfection!  Great with any meal, as an appetizer, or in a spicy Bloody. ❈
