I know this isn't particularly helpful, but anything pickled ROCKS.

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it.  Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.

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.
