I ran across this today and thought it was interesting! Make homemade pickle juice!
Homemade Pickle Juice
1/2 tsp Dill weed, dried
1 clove Garlic
2 tbsp Kosher salt
1 tbsp Pickling spice
1 dash Sugar
1 cup White vinegar 5% acetic acid
2 cups Water purified, filtered
Unfortunately, there were no instructions. I will have to assume it need to sit a while to blend the flavors though do you ferment it or just keep it in the fridge?

To my knowledge, I don't think people just down it like you would a glass of water. I use it for leg cramps, hiccups, etc. I just take the lid off the jar and take a good swallow. It is a lifesaver when I get these in the middle of the night.

Mary-Ellen Zands wrote:Pickle juice, well i’ll Share my favourite secret for making the best potato salad ever. Is that when your potatoes are still hot. Soak them in the leftover pickle brine. Then when making the potato salad just add enough pickle brine to make a nice creamy dressing. Then of course add your usual herbs and kefir. Yes i make mine with kefir and sometimes a little sour cream. Yummy!
