      Greetings all,

      When I first started doing historical cooking in the late 80s, I made a cucumber dish for my college group's feast that was thin sliced cucumbers soaked overnight in red wine vinegar, drained, and then made into a salad with spices and sour cream. The pink color was important, I may be misremembering the sour cream.

      It could just be that my memory of this recipe's historicalness is pure imagination, but I'm just sure I got it from a book in our college library. "Period cookbooks" at the time that I knew about consisted of Fabulous Feasts and To the King's Taste. (I still have both my copies from this timeperiod).

      Anywho, I thought I'd ping the experts here and see if something like this sounds familiar to someone.

      Thanks in advance,
      Rafaella d'Allemtejo
