Pickle Juice and Its Many Uses

Save that pickle juice!
Save that pickle juice! | Source


Okay you've finished that last pickle and are about to dump the juice down the drain, and either save the jar or throw it away. STOP! Don't dispose or do anything until you read all the great things you can do with the pickle juice. Yes this wonderful pickle juice can be reused in recipes and more.



Frugal Uses For Leftover Pickle Juice

  • Do you like Caesars or Bloody Mary's? Put the pickle juice into ice cube trays and freeze. Instead of using plain old regular ice cubes next time you whip up a Bloody Mary or Caesar, use pickled ice cubes for a little bit of a zippier taste.
  • Out of vinegar for that marinade? Grab some pickle juice.
  • Use it next time you're making a homemade salad dressing.
  • I really like pickled beets and hate to pay the price of them because I go threw so many of them. I cook fresh beets and use the left over pickle juice for the beets.
  • I've heard that in Texas they make snow cones with pickle juice.
  • Do you like dill pickle potato chips but only have plain on hand? Put the potato chips in a bowl and spritz with the pickle juice.
  • Pickle juice can be used to add flavor and moisture to potato salad, egg salad, macaroni salad, tuna salad, coleslaw and used in onion dip as well.
  • Peel and slice some cucumbers and add them to the pickle juice. Leave for them sitting in the juice for a few hours and serve as a condiment with any meal.
  • Asparagus spears are very tasty in pickle juice. Simply blanch them and add them right to the jar. Let them sit for a day before eating.
  • Let's not forget pickled eggs. Hard boil eggs, peel and add to the pickle jar with juice.



Ingredients in Pickle Juice

  • Vinegar is the main ingredient in pickle juice.
  • Salt
  • Potassium
  • Vitamin C
  • Sugar
  • Dill
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Cloves
  • Calcium Chloride



Is Pickle Juice Healthy?

The Philadelphia Eagles said that they drink pickle juice to avoid leg cramps. There's actually a drink called Pickle Juice Sport, that apparently has more electrolytes in it than Gatorade or Powerade. The way in which this works is: When you exercise and sweat your body loses salt, which are electrolytes, thus causing cramping in the muscles. By drinking pickle juice, Gatorade or Powerade, you're replenishing the body of needed electrolytes. Because pickle juice is high in salt content a healthy person should not drink more than two ounces of this at one time and it should be diluted with water.

Some people have thought that pickle juice can aide in getting rid of a stomach ache or bacteria in the stomach. This is a myth, as the ingredients in pickle juice will not kill the bacteria in the stomach.

It's always best to check with your health care profession first before drinking pickle juice.

Please note that pickle juice has been know to cause Acid Reflux also known as Heartburn.

Do You Reuse Your Pickle Juice

  • I had no idea there were so many uses for pickle juice.
  • I will start using the leftover pickle juice.

azrestoexp, I had to go and do some research about dumping pickle juice down a drain and here's what I found. If you have a clogged drain take pickle juice and put it into a pot. Boil it on your stove and then pour it down the drain. It is supposed to unclog the drain. I'll have to try this, and if it works I'll add it to this hub.

Nice to meet you!

I too am at the end of a jar so I'm glad I found your hub. I had heard somewhere that you shouldn't dump the jucie down the drain. Don't remember why, but I never have. Will definitely give some of your suggestions a try.

Hey Susan. Magnesium is the element and also potassium. There is a lovely little Schussler cell salt called Mag-phos for those cramps (menses). It is a combination of magnesium and phosphorus. However, there are a number of other remedies specifically for leg cramps. The bananas are good! Blessings, Debby


Just Ask Susan profile image

Just Ask Susan 4 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Debby, I find if I eat bananas every single day I don't get the cramps as often. I suppose it is a potassium thing. I'll have to try the soap. Thanks for telling me about this.

Susan - great tips for using the pickle juice. Regarding the leg cramps, my aunt puts a bar of soap in her socks when going to bed at night and says this helps. Of course, there are a number of excellent homeopathic remedies to address leg cramps, that may clear up the problem. Wondering if your body craves an element that is missing or can be found in the pickle juice? Blessings, Debby

My brother (who has passed) always used to drink pickle juice! He loved it! I thought he was coo-coo! But come to think of it.. he never got a leg cramp!

SilverGenes, It really does work for the leg and foot cramps. I asked my son to get me the pickle juice out of the fridge the other night and he gave me the strangest look :)

I never thought of freezing it for ice cubes. What a great idea! I have stuffed thawed frozen veggies in it though...yum! I'm going to try a bit for those nasty foot and leg cramps, too! Thanks for these creative ideas :)

Yes the juice would DEFINITELY be hot - it would be ....pickled jalapeno juice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, that might really go good for a dash of spice in the Bloody Mary!!!!


Just Ask Susan profile image

Just Ask Susan 4 years ago from Ontario, Canada Author

Wesman, I've been tempted to try the juice in the jalapeno pepper jars :) Do you think it would be hot? I grew jalapeno peppers one year and boy were they ever good!

I can picture you in J.H. throwing pickle juice :)


Wesman Todd Shaw profile image

Wesman Todd Shaw 4 years ago from Kaufman, Texas

I don't just like Jalapeno peppers....I REALLY like Jalapeno peppers. I prefer them pickled, but they are plenty good fresh too.

I sometimes put the fresh ones into pickle juice - its sort of a compromise!

When I was in Jr. High there was a theater in town - we're in a small town, so it was a really small theater...I think they have church in there now.

In the theater they sold cups of pickle juice for eleven cents...and you know how bad Jr. High kids are...we'd buy it just to toss at each other. :-/

Every time I buy a jar of pickle, I would just drain off the water and never had much thought about it. I never would have come up with brilliant ideas to use the juice to make a dressing or ice cubes! My next pickle juice will be made into a dressing with some herbs and olive oil!

Thank you for the tips! (I'm saving it for future use!)

JamaGenee, So glad you liked the hub. The ice cubes would be good in V-8.


JamaGenee profile image

Funniest thing...I'm nearly at the end of a jar of dill slices and was wondering if there was something I could do with the juice instead of pouring it down the drain!

Except for an occasional margarita, I don't drink, so pickle juice ice cubes will go into plain tomato juice or V-8 for extra "zip"!

Thanks for all these great tips! Voted up, useful and interesting! ;D

After a bit of frugal thinking, you can, after straining it use it to make homemade Mayo. The residual dill would add a certain something to the mayo's taste, especially to Mercy's dvelilled eggs.

Phyllis, I didn't know that the eggs would keep that long. They usually don't last much past a few days at my house. The asparagus is quite good, and you can use either the white or green.

cebutouristspot, Every little bit helps when it comes to saving money.

A.A. Store bought pickles themselves will keep in the frige I believe for about a year. They never last much longer than two weeks in my house :). The juice itself I would imagine the same amount of time, but personally I wouldn't keep it more than a few months.

Hi Susan. This is a great informative hub. Pickle juice is one of the things I use a lot in my kitchen. Boiled eggs will keep for three months or more in pickle juice. I like the juice of bread and butter pickles for the eggs and vegetables. There was a huge discussion on this in a frugal forum on another site I write for and the ideas that came up were awesome. One thing we did not think about was the asparagus. I bet that would be really good.

Great idea to use in egg salad, potato salad, etc.... Or to put aparagus or other thing in it to "pickle." I may try carrots and cauliflower and who knows what else.
