I'm all about zero waste...and that includes the brine from our homemade sauerkraut.  If you're looking for a way to use that brine, check out 18 different uses below!  

  1. To soak grains for proper preparation (in lieu of whey or apple cider vinegar)
  2. Add a splash to bone broth or hot soup for a fun kick
  3. Use it in deviled eggs when mixing up the yolks
  4. Mix a little into hummus
  5. Add to potato salad for a zing
  6. Use as a marinade for meat (similar to vinegar, it tenderizes)
  7. Put some in your bloody mary.  Enough said.
  8. Add it to your homemade mayo
  9. Mix it in a dip for veggies
  10. Drink it straight!  Or dilute it with flat or sparkling water
  11. Use as a salad dressing (treat as you would vinegar and add some oil, spices, etc.)
  12. Pickle some hardboiled eggs
  13. Add it to your cold soup base 
  14. Add it to egg salad 
  15. Speed up your compost (I can't wait to try this one!)
  16. Add it your fresh veggie juice
  17. Use it it to saute your greens (it will the probiotic, but the flavor will be delish!)
  18. Feed it to your chickens (I wish I had chickens!)
