Sorry I didn't post the source when I sent the recipe. I was being herded 
out the door as I was copying the last bits to my post.

The pickle recipe is from Lancelot de Casteau's Ouverture de Cuisine. It was 
published in 1604 by a then retiring chef, which puts the recipe's original 
use as prior to 1600. The original was in French.
