    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.

    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.

    I buy Bubbie's pickles so the pickles juice has lots of good probiotics. I have some sitting in my fridge and I'm going to marinate chicken in it.

    I buy schorr's garlic sour pickles which are a ferment. So yeah, I drink the juice. It's basically a brine so mostly salt water, but the garlic and ferment process bestows the sour and the juice of ferments has been said to be excellent tonics for the stomach and digestion.

    Supposedly, pickle juice is an excellent hangover cure.
