Katharina asked:
<<< BTW does anyone have period jam, preserve, marmelad, jelly, or  
what ever you
can call a mix of fruit and sugar-cooked? >>>

Well, perhaps these files in the FOOD-SWEET-DECORATED section of the  
Florilegium might be what you are looking for:

marmalades-msg   (104K)  4/30/07    Period marmalades and fruit  
jellies and jams
suckets-msg        (7K)  4/ 1/02    Spices, fruit or fruit peel in a  
sugar syrup
Sugarplums-art    (19K)  7/15/98    "Visions of Sugarplums" by Mistress
                                        Renata Kestryl of Highwynds.
wine-jelly-msg     (4K) 11/ 4/08    Period and modern jellies made  
with wine.

Sometimes it is a matter of thickness between a jelly and the suckets  
mentioned above. Or going the other direction toward more solid and  
less jelly we have the following, which I'll mention since they might  
also be of interest:

candied-fruit-msg (34K)  2/ 2/07    Period candied fruit. Recipes.
Cndied-Ginger-art (14K)  5/ 4/07    "Candied Ginger for Remembraunce -  
                                        Versions" by THL Johnnae llyn  
candied-peels-art (16K)  3/21/06    "Candied Fruit Peel" by Dame Alys  
candied-peels-msg (58K)  2/ 2/07    Candied fruit peels. A late period  

Is this what you had in mind?
