The key ingredient in Dill Pickle Saltines recipe is the dill pickle juice. It is important that the juice is from a dill pickle jar and not a sweet gerkin! These are two different liquids and two different flavors. We enjoy eating dill pickles from time to time and once we finish a jar, I save the liquid in the jar. It comes in handy for these types of recipes.
I used the mini saltine crackers for the Dill Pickle Saltines but this recipe also will work with the regular saltines or even the little oyster crackers! Mix it up a little and see what you prefer!
