I thought of this when the kids had sore throats, and they didn't want to gargle the hot/warm salty water that's the old stand by. (I have 3 kids, now ages 20, 18, and 17.) They all loved pickles so it worked like a charm. I poured the juice into a small cup and told them to gargle as they sip on the juice. They usually drank it up any way, so I'd have to hide some for when just such a time came - LOL!

My gramma used to have me drink a little bit of sweet gerkin (sp?) juice for hiccups. It worked every time.
Here's one more vote for "Doctor Mom!" Only a mom knows what works for her kids, and your solution means fewer antibiotics in your kids' systems. Hope they pass on your home remedy to your grandkids when they come along.
