Ingredients Index

Here you'll find descriptions of ingredients from the recipes on this site that need explaining. This is not an encyclopdia or lexicon, the information is rather arbitrary. A lot of the information on these pages is from The Oxford Companion to Food, van Alan Davidson and Tom Jaine.
This page got longer and longer, so now (December 2010) I have decided to give each letter its own page. Here on this page there is an overview of all ingredients mentioned.
