I promised to report back here after 2 weeks, & here I am. Tonight I ate one of the okras I stuffed into my leftover jar of hotter-than-heck commercial habenero green-bean pickle brine.
It was FABULOUS!!!! Hot as heck, but still crisp & with no okra "slime". Even better than the commerical pickled okra I sometimes buy.
If I end up with food poisoning tomorrow, I'll leave a note for someone to let you guys know not to try it, but it's been 4 hours & I still feel just fine!!
