What can I do with pickle juice

I have a recipe for buying dill pickles ,slicing them and putting in a jar with sugar and celery seed over them. We really like these, but I hate to throw out the juice. Any suggestions for using it? I hate to waste it. Thanks, Faye

When I make deviled eggs, I add pickle juice to the egg yolks (along with the other ingreds).
It's also a nice addition to potato salad.

This may sound weird but: years ago I used to make a glaze for chicken with the juice leftover from a good jar of pickles (such as the refrigerated kind with garlic bits). I just added a small can of tomato paste and about half to 3/4 of a box of brown sugar, just shook all together in the jar and poured over a cut up chicken, cover and simmer till chicken was done, removed lid and cook glaze down till thick. it was yummy and never would have tried it just reading it somewhere, but a friend of mine did it all the time and after trying it, i did also.

Pickled Eggs

Put some hard boiled eggs in a jar. Add some sliced onions and garlic. Heat up the pickle juice (not to boiling, but so it's steaming).

Pour the hot pickle juice over the eggs to cover completely (add vinegar if you are a little short of juice).

Cool, then refrigerate for at least a day or two before biting in!

You can make this soup and add some but not too much pickle juice to it. But it must not be vinegar based juice. It is very interesting taste. I normaly use pickles, but my aunt always used the juice.

You know.... I just stopped back into this thread to ask why you couldn't reuse the juice to pickle something else? Even pickles, or maybe make relish.

BTW, gotta have beets too, to make the eggs purple

I had a friend who always added some to her Italian beef as it cooked, along with a beer.

I have used a little apple cider vinegar in deviled eggs so I can see using the pickle juice that way.
And I am going to do the boiled eggs. That sounds sooo good, since I love eggs cooked that way. I just might try that tomorrow.
thanks for the ideas, I knew that juice was too good to throw out. Faye

We use pickle juice to prepare 'Masala muri' or puffed rice with spices as snacks.

Steam asparagus spears until they're crisp/tender; cut them to jar size, put them in refrigerator for a day. Delicious!
