Do you throw away the leftover pickle juice after you have finished a jar of pickles? If so, it’s time to change your ways! Leftover pickle juice can serve you in other ways, some that you probably didn’t even know about. Let’s check them out.

Make More Pickles

Just because the pickle juice was used for one batch of pickles doesn’t mean it can’t do it once again. Simply throw in more cucumbers in it or go to experiment town and try other veggies. Your pickle juice can help you make pickled onions, mushrooms, and even pickled hard-boiled eggs.

Use it as a Marinade

This might surprise you, but pickle juice can be a great marinade for your meat. Just brush a steak or pork chops with some pickle juice and watch it do its magic. It will not only tenderize the meat but also add to the flavor.

Pickle Juice Dressing

Pickle juice is a great substitute for vinegar. This means you can use it as a salad dressing, coleslaw ingredient, or a way to add a savory kick to other meals.

Drink It

Pickle juice is not only safe to drink straight up, but it is also recommended. It can help you cool off on a hot day or cure that hangover that’s been bothering you after a long night of drinking.
