The juice from the pickle jar is a secret ingredient in many chowhounds’ pantries. Here are some favorite uses:

A little kosher dill pickle juice is great in potato salad. Pickle juice also enhances tuna salad and deviled eggs.

Adding pickle juice to braised short ribs or pot roast gives a nice deep taste to the gravy.
