Reserve Pickle Juice to Make New Pickles

When you are done with the pickles in a jar (the cold variety), save the liquid. You can buy pickling cucumbers at the market, cut them up the way you like, and put back into the mix. In 3 or 4 days, you will have some good tasting new pickles. You can add more vinegar or hot pepper flakes if you want it a little more spicy.

...and the pickle juice from Bread & Butter pickles makes the best pickled beets. Just pour off and either drink or have your children drink the juice from a can of cut beets, then add the drained beets to the bread and butter pickle juice. Refrigerate for a few days, and you have the best pickled beets for the next time you want to serve them.

I sometimes strain the pickle juice, add it to the canned beet juice, and bring it to a boil on the stove. Add 1-2 TBS corn starch to 1/4 cup of water and stir it into the boiling liquid. Stir constantly until it's thickend, then add the beets to the boiling liquid, cover and remove from heat. This makes a really nice side dish. Enough like Harvard beets to call them Harvard Beets. :-)
