    Units: US | Metric

    • fresh cucumber, sliced
    • 1 (32 ounce) jar pickles, with ONLY juice left in the jar after all pickles have been removed (I prefer Vlasic Kosher Dills)


    1. 1
      Slice cucumbers.
    2. 2
      Place slices into jar of commercially prepared pickle brine, filling the jar just until all cucumbers are covered by the liquid.
    3. 3
      Replace lid and refrigerate.
    4. 4
      Wait at least 4 hours to serve. (These are actually better after 3 or 4 days).
    5. 5
      Keeps in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.

      Waste nothing, want nothing. More of a method than a recipe, to use up jarred pickle brine. Love the results, and for a minimum of fuss.

      I have been doing this for years! I love Pickles but don't want to make them and can them myself. This is a wonderful and thrifty way to make your own "homemade" Pickles! Thanks for sharing.

      I actually just did this a few weeks ago and was quite pleased with the results, but next time I will add more spices, since the flavor of the brine is a bit weaker. They tasted (and crunched) best after about 5 days. I used lemon cucumbers (the round yellowish kind).
