These http://www.seatofmars.com/marmalade.htm are not the Tinternvale 
preserves, especially
the Scotch Bonnet Pepper Preserves. It's a different company and this 
one might really be using
older recipes.

For period preserves recipes try the Florilegium.org or use the index 
here at
Search by fruit name.
