Why You Should Be Boiling Your Potatoes In Pickle Juice
Boiled potatoes are a classic side dish that is simple to make, but they can be a bit bland, and while you can add lots of toppings, it's also possible to infuse the potatoes themselves with flavor. Instead of throwing away pickle juice after you finish the pickles, you should repurpose it and use it to flavor your boiled potatoes.
Adding pickle juice to the water used for boiling potatoes gives them a tangy, flavorful twist with a nice hit of salt, so you don't have to add any extra. Pickle brine is also rich in electrolytes and can help to prevent muscle cramps, according to Michigan Medicine, and your brine may also have spices that boost its flavor and nutrition further.
To make boiled potatoes with pickle juice, fill a pot with water, add a generous splash of pickle juice, bring the water to a boil, and then add your potatoes. As the potatoes boil, they will absorb the pickle juice and take on the tangy, salty flavor of the vinegar brine, which gives them a unique and delicious flavor that is sure to be a hit.
