I would not be surprised to learn that pioneers kept their pickles in covered crocks and made those pickles without cooking them.

You've never spent much time in New England, have you?? NE is a time warp and you will find things there that you thought had been wiped from the face of the earth. I remember the "pickle barrels" in a couple small stores when I was a kid. When we went up there two weeks ago, we went to a drive-in. Bet you thought those were all gone, too.
