Leftover Magic: Further uses for things you never knew there were uses for

1. Pickle juice. When you finish the last of the pickles out of the jar, save the pickle brine. Slice up a cucumber and add it to the brine. In 2-3 days, you'll have new pickles. Repeat ad infinitum.

2. Potato water. After cooking potatoes, don't pour it down the drain. Use it to make bread--as in this Potato, Parmesan and Cracked Peppercorn No-Knead Bread.

3. Squeezed-out lemon halves. Drop one in your garbage disposal--keeps things smelling fresh and lemony!
