  • Pickle juice

    Someone in this thread, awhile back, said something about what you could do with pickle juice. I don't remember what it was but I do remember that it was both interesting and helpful. Does anyone recall it? I'm about to empty a jar of "no sugar added" pickles and I hate to throw the juice away.

    Sorry, I hadn't seen that thread. Does your jar also have no chemicals added? A number of people here make their own pickles and it doesn't sound very hard.

      all the liquid in store bought pickles is just vinegar, salt and dill

      those also have splenda

      so you really aren't wasting anything unless you just like pickle juice (and who doesn't like pickle juice?)
      beautiful
      yeah you are

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
      lol

        Some people on the various fasting threads have explored using pickle juice as an electrolyte re-balancer. But salted water would probably do the same.

          I use it occasionally for egg salad...I use a little (not too much or it will be runny) of the pickle juice and a little mayo, and also chop some pickle into the salad.

            Drop hard-boiled eggs in it and leave them for a week for pickled eggs.

              I don't know about the added chemicals, I just bought the "no sugar added" pickles to cut up for egg or tuna salad. All for convenience sake and to stay a little more primal.

                That's a great idea!

                  I buy pickles in a half-gallon container. When the tub is empty I may make pickled eggs that way once and then discard the used pickle juice.

                    I like pickle juice - sweet prickle juice - and I don't sweat a little Splenda or Stevia.

                      That makes me think I might add a little to sour cream to make a salad dressing. Trying to stay away from store bought mayonaise until I get the hang of making my own.

                        I'm still fighting night leg cramps even though I take both magnesium and potassium. Wonder if the pickle juice would help? Probably taste better than salted water. Wonder how much I'd have to drink.

                          When I was having leg cramps, both when I was pregnant and later when going through menopause, it was vitamin E that brought it under control.

                            How much did you take?

                              When I was pregnant I took a few a day. During menopause I took a lot, but then it was also making my hot flashes disappear. I think up to half a dozen a day. But how it worked was if I took less, the symptoms would come back, and I would take more.

                              In the absence of pregnancy or menopause, which I think were causing an unusual need, I think one gelcap a day might be enough.
