comment Can I use the leftover pickling brine?
disagree on the dupe - that is for brine that is quite old and had pickles in it. This is for salty and/or vinegary water that was heated up and then cooled. It doesn't have the same risks as brine that has had pickles, herbs, spices etc in it for ages and been exposed to air repeatedly.
