What's even crazier still is that once I'm done with the pickle spears, I've started drinking the pickle juice. Apparently, pickle juice is the coconut oil of the brining world (okay maybe vinegar is the coconut oil of the brining world). It's good as a hangover and heartburn cure, for replenishing electrolytes after a workout, PMS remedy and shot chaser, among other things. So this blog post serves double duty as my PSA announcement for the week - Drink Pickle Juice. You'll thank me (or hate me) for it.
