Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 pounds tomatoes -- peeled
3 pounds okra
6 garlic cloves -- peeled

Prepare Ball brand or Kerr brand jars and closures according to
manufacturer's instructions.

Combine tomatoes and okra in a large saucepot. Cover with boiling water;
bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Pack hot
vegetables into hot jars, leaving 1-inch headspace. Add 1 garlic clove to
each jar.

Carefully ladle hot cooking liquid over vegetables, leaving 1-inch
headspace. Remove air bubbles with a nonmetallic spatula. Wipe jar rim
clean. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass. Screw band
down evenly and firmly just until a point of resistance is met --
fingertip tight.

Process 30 minutes at 10 pounds pressure in a steam-pressure canner. For
elevations higher than 1,000 feet, increase pressure accordingly following
cooker manufacturer's recommendation.

This recipe yields about 6 pints.
