My cucumber plants are going gang-busters - 9 cucumbers growing already, 
and they only just started flowering.
Are there any period cucumber recipes?  I can't think of any in the 
European stuff I'm familiar with, but I focus mostly on northern European 15th 
century and earlier, so that leaves out a lot of sources.  Is there anything in 
later or more southern sources?
How about modern recipes for cucumbers?  Most of what I know to do is slice 
or chunk them into salads and sandwiches, and various variation on salads 
with vinegar, onions, and possibly yogurt or sour cream.
Can regular cucumbers be made into pickles?  I know there are brands sold 
as "pickling cucumbers" but I don't know what the difference is.
