The ones in grape must were an utter failure, perhaps because the grape was not already fermenting when introduced.
The ones in brine, which were cracked, had a small window of ok-ness but they got mushy and therefore bad.
The limes and thyme have a lot of murk in them, and retain some harshness. But the flavor is complex and quite interesting.
The ones in honey are quite shriveled, similar to the modern oil-cured olive. They are sweet and tasty
Probably the best are the ones in oxymeli. They have a sweetness to them, balanced with the acid of the vinegar and olive.

10/11/15. Not much going on in the garden, the tomatoes are failing and the coleworts are all eaten by the wurms. Twas a good year for apples though, they are a bit blotched and spotty but very sweet, and I'm liking how the pollard tree is taking shape...
