Lots of people have a complicated relationship with pickles.
Tangy and salty, with varying levels of sugar, spice, and sourness — not everyone is a fan. They’re what you might call an acquired taste.
Of course, for those of us who do love them, we can’t stop singing their praises.
We swear by them as an effective way of waking up the senses, we pop them in Bloody Marys, we even deep-fry them and serve ‘em up as a snack! In the pro-pickle camp, we’re pretty keen on showing the world why briny, flavorful pickles are the best.
Of course, up until now, most of the arguments have been about food and taste. Now, however, we have a brand-new tactic: pickle juice!
Most of us throw out our pickle juice once we finish the jar, even those of us who love the taste. As it turns out, that’s a huge waste of money; plain old pickle juice has tons of hidden benefits that we should all be taking advantage of.
