My mom has a tupperware pickle keeper that has a strainer with a handle inside of it. Pull all the pickles out of the juice and grab one, lower back down. No dirty pickles or utensils :)

So doesn't it get a little messy drinking the pickle juice?

I have a silver pickle fork from my grandmother's wedding set. It got polished once, then wrapped tightly and never polished again.

The handle hits you in the bridge of the nose! If you forget a pickle fork in there, you could lose an eye!
