I made the awful mistake of using the pan drippings for gravy of a turkey that had been brined. That was an interesting Thanksgiving.

Details? Drippings from a brined Turkey should be fine for making gravy, assuming you didn't over-salt the gravy. I've done it a few times.

It was the Alton Brown brine recipe. I don't think I even added salt to the gravy directly, but it was way too salty to use.

Weird. Did you pay the bird dry before roasting? I can only think that some excess brine got in the pan pre-roasting. Otherwise, if the Turkey wasn't too salty, the pan drippings shouldn't have been too salty.

/Yes, I realize the drippings would reduce and become more salty, but reconstituted with stock and/or other liquids, it shouldn't get too salty. Maybe the stock you used wasn't unsalted?

apparently, this is a new thing being served up at my local county fair (2nd largest in NY)

"Brine drinks
When you're eating all that food, you're going to need to wash that down with something. At Eddie's Pickles, the oldest New York pickle company, aside from their fermented pickles, you'll find brine drinks and pickle juice. According to owner Ralph Pisarski, the company's pickles along with its brines and juices contain pro-biotics to help boost immunity as well as trace minerals and vitamins.

The brine drinks, which do not contain vinegar, Eddie's Pickles will be offering include regular brine, spicy brine, and dill brine. Located in the Food Mall, the stand will also offer vegan fried pickles and their fermented pickles."

how he does it without vinegar, idk

Two of my "secret" soup ingredients are pickle juice & kraut juice. They really help round out & deepen the flavor.

Is this really a surprise? I've used this to some degree for decades.
What is missing is good 'kraut brine though, although I see some farkers know better. Not the cheap sour stuff, quality 'kraut brine. We have a local brinery who does garlic and dill 'kraut, and not a drop of that brine is wasted!
I'm definitely saving some recipes though...

My mouth just started watering, and I know there is a little 'kraut left in the fridge...
