Tomato Tomahto... Tomatoes with Okra

Tomatoes with Okra
From the NCHFP 
Found on Canning Only Recipes


Use about 3 pounds of tomatoes to 1 pound of okra. 

An average of 12 pounds of tomatoes and 4 pounds of okra is needed per canner load of 7 quarts. 

An average of 7 pounds of tomatoes and 2-1/2 pounds of okra is needed per canner load of 9 pints. 


Wash tomatoes and okra. Dip tomatoes in boiling water 30 to 60 seconds or until skins split. Then dip in cold water, slip off skins and remove cores, and quarter. Trim stems from okra and slice into 1-inch pieces or leave whole. 

Bring tomatoes to a boil and simmer 10 minutes. Add okra and boil gently 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of salt for each quart to the jars, if desired. Fill jars with mixture, leaving 1-inch headspace. 

Adjust lids and process in a pressure canner at 10 lbs of pressure for 30 mins for pints and 35 mins for quarts. 

Variation: You may add four or five pearl onions or two onion slices to each jar.
