    I just got finished canning the end of the season cukes and have a ton of bread and butter pickle juice still in the pot... what else can I pickle with it?

    peppers?
    watermelon rinds?

    Ooohhhh I think peppers would be fabulous! Or maybe peppers and onions or something like for a relish?

    I like to jullienne carrots and let them soak in there. after they soak in the juice (in the fridge) they are all yum and crisp and ...oh gosh, yummy.

    I was googling a bit and found out I can put just about anything in there and it will pickle in the fridge... I don't even need to boil it again..

    was thinking of trying dilly beans. ..maybe just add some garlic and pepper flakes to what I got.

    I also like the peppers and onions idea for samiches... [​IMG]

    Green tomatoes in Bread-n-Butter juice make tasty relish. [​IMG]

    Peppers(red/green/yellow), tomatoes, cauliflower....etc....
    Whenever we buy dill pickles from the store we never throw out the juice. We always cut a cucumber and stick it in the jar. In a short time we have more dill pickles. [​IMG]
