Definitely get hold of a copy of
Martha Washington's Booke of Cookery and Booke of Sweetmeats
It was owned by Martha Washington but the two "bookes" are actually
Tudor-Jacobean culinary manuscripts
that were passed down in her husband's family. There are numerous
preserved foods, fruit pastes, jellies, quidonies,
As for where to start-- you might read through the florilegium.org and
check out the left hand side index.
I'd suggest Food-Books to start.

In addition to "preserves" I think that there might be some pickling
recipes in Karen Hess's translation/edition of "Martha Washington's Book
of Cookery". Much of the recipes there in were late period English.
Could someone check, I've mislaid my copy? snipped
