Leave a small portion of the stem end on each okra pod. Rinse the okra and drain well.
Pack enough okra into 4 or 5 pint jars to pack them firmly, but leave ¼inch headspace. Insert 1 garlic clove, 1 hot red pepper, and 1teaspoon of dill seeds into each jar as you go along.
Combine the salt, vinegar, and water and bring to the boil. Pour equal amounts of the boiling liquid over the okra to cover, leaving ¼inch headspace. Seal tightly with screw-top lids. Process 10 minutes in a boiling-water bath.
