Dust off the can of tomato juice from the back of your pantry, add the brine (that would be pickle juice) from any of our pickle flavors and the day is saved. You did remember the vodka, didn't you?
- Serves 4 depending on how big your glass is!
- 1 leftover jar of McClure's brine (after finishing pickles you should have about 1/2 jar of brine left from any 32oz jar of McClure's)
- 14-16oz tomato juice
- black pepper
- seasoning to taste (garlic powder, worchestshire sauce, etc.)
- Using the leftover brine from a jar of McClure's 32oz Spicy, Garlic, or Sweet & Spicy pickles, fill the rest of the jar with tomato juice. Add 2-3 dashes of black pepper and additional seasoning (garlic powder, etc.) to desired taste. Using the cap that came with the jar, place the lid back on the jar and tighten.

- Your favorite pizza recipe
- Your favorite pizza toppings
- 3 spears McClure's Spicy or Garlic Dill Pickles (diced)
- Using your favorite pizza recipe or pizza from a restaurant, have it warm and ready to serve. Dice into small cubes McClure's garlic dill or spicy spears and top them on your pizza. These make an excellent alternative to pepperoncini, olives, sun-dried tomatoes or go great hand-in-hand with them. Just dice and top on your pizza.
- First, eat all of the McClure's pickles out of the jar. Second, pour the brine over a couple of chicken breasts. Third, grill and ... enjoy! Or is that fourth? Anyways, our brine is the best way to give fish, chicken and even pork a tender and delicious flavor.
- leftover McClure's brine from garlic dill pickles
- 2 all natural chicken breasts
- (1) 1 gallon plastic bag
