I don't know, exactly, except the resulting juice/pickling agent  
should be full of electrolites and tasty to drink.

There are a number of period recipies for pickled foods, meats,  
veggies, fruit, flowers, roots, nuts, fish. Are you looking  
specifically for pickled cucumbers, or something else?

I realize that asking a question during Pennsic is possibly not the  
best time, but since I know there are MANY Calontiri not attending  
this year, I ask:

Are there any medieval recipes for pickles?
Considering how much pickle juice is consumed on the battlefield and  
off, I'm thinking about making pickles for next summer.
