...I know the juice for green olives is used in dirty martinis but is there anything you can do with black olive juice? I'm trying to not be a wasteful person and I eat a LOT of black olives and I always just dispose of the juice. Was curious to see if theres anything people do with the juice after. I've heard of some people drinking it but I think I'll pass on that! TY in advance!

Trouble Maker? Good far as your black olive juice, you have to start by tasting it. Too briny, throw it out, but some use a water and vinegar and other combinations that can taste quite good. You can use small amounts for cooking, to make marinades and sauces. We've got a restaurant where we give away olives as soon as you are seated. We use 7 to 9 kinds and about 1/2 the liquid is quite good (ex. the Nicoise juice is good, the green picholine is not). We combine the juices we like, add some fresh minced garlic (makes everything better) herbs (usually an Herbs de Provence mix we make) a seasoning salt we make, and then extra virgin olive oil. The finished "juice" is far better than what the olives came in and some customers even like to use the juice for their bread.

Play with it!

If you are talking about canned black olives, that juice is only water.

Wise to read the can cause there are exceptions.

My friend uses it in place of beef stock in her French onion soup and claims no one ever knows the difference. She also uses it to make gravies. She's an excellent cook, so I plan to give it a try.

If it didn't contain so much sodium I would be drinking black olive brine by the glassful. I eat a lot of black olives because I love the taste... The brine has the same taste, but concentrated. It is delicious!

d.d, nice to know that there are others out there that also like the taste of brine from canned black olives. Whenever I use a can of them for whatever I take couple of sips of the juice before pouring the rest down the drain.

Barley. Whatever amount of liquid you need, make half of it black olive juice, the other half water. (All olive juice is too salty.) A pat of butter atop the finished product and you have a tasty and unique side dish. If you want color, stir fry some multi-colored mini peppers, (red/yellow/orange), and toss them with the cooked barley. Yummy.
