These Ideas are among many you can use up that pickle juice instead of throwing it away.Plus it saves a lot of time- no need to process just pour over vegetables in jars and store in refrigerator.
Some of these ideas come from family and friends.

My favorite juice is the bread and butter pickle juice! I always have veggies in the fridge in this juice. Oh so good!
