What is this murky green stuff... and why am I telling you NEVER to throw it away!? This is the juice, or brine left over from when you ferment lacto-fermented pickles!
You can learn to make basic pickles here.
Don't be scared when it looks like pond-water (that's actually a great indication that it is teeming with live, beneficial microbes...) It also happens to be delicious-slighty salty, tart, and moorish!
Things you can do with your pickle juice:
🥒put it in the fridge and enjoy it chilled in a wine glass and a digestive tonic while you are cooking dinner
🥒add it to your salad dressings
🥒add a tablespoon to a warm cup of bone broth
🥒drizzle over kids food- rice, pasta, meat or veggies. A great subtle way to get kids to enjoy the benefits of probiotics
🥒add to homemade dips, mayonnaise and salsas. Eg hummus, quacamole.
🥒mmmmmmm... add to a bloody mary. Yum!
How do you enjoy pickle brine?
Enjoy that Bloody Mary! Sammi xxx
