    Any good uses for pickle juice?

    I try to live frugally and not be wasteful. Are there ways to use the pickle juice from a jar of pickles once the pickles are all gone?

    My mom used to stick baby corn in the pickle juice. It was actually really good, and we loved it as kids.

    I slice up cucumbers and put them in the jar to soak for about a month.

    Sorry, my only use for pickle juice is to drink it!

    Yes, it would be a shame to waste pickle juice!  I used to drink the stuff until I had to cut down on the sodium.  My ex mother-in-law mixed pickle juice with mayonaise, then put the "sauce" over coleslaw or lettuce as salad dressing.  Mixed this sauce into potato salad, too.

    My granddaughter drinks it, a little at a time. She's a pickle fanatic and 5 years old. Need I say more.

      Yes I like the taste of some pickle water too - such as cucumber or other sweetish pickles, but not pickled onion water, which is strong

    Make Picklebacks.  Chase a shot of Jameson Whiskey with a shot of pickle juice.  It's delicious.  I first had these at Good Co in Williamsburg, Brooklyn . Now I save all of my pickle juice at home to make these when I have friends over.

    Besides what has already been mentioned, try some experimentation with food recipes. Results may vary, though.

    I had to look in on this question because I could not imagine how it could be re-used.  I found some really good answers that I intend to try.  My favorites are: sprinkling it over fish and chips and pickling cucumbers and baby carrots.

    I splash some in the deviled part of my deviled eggs and use it in mac salad and egg salad

    You can make pickled eggs I think, but I am not sure how you'd go about doing that exactly. My neighbor used to use it on steak to make it more tender. I would opt to just drink it straight from the jar though.

    Yes! It's great for soaking pickles in.                     Dill and the other kind

    Once a friend of ours suggested putting pickle juice on a skin burn. I just looked it up online to verify and found that others have found that cold vinegar (a component in pickle juice) helps soothe sunburn and prevent blisters.

    I know this sounds crazy, but it works.  It you have a leg cramp or charley horse eat a pickle or drink some pickle juice and it will stop the spasm.

    You can use it to de-scale the calcium deposit in kettles or round your taps, and add it to curries, or Chinese meals or anything where you might otherwise use lemon juice
