I thought it might be useful to collect updates in one place as they accumulate to make it easy to copy to our books or print out for them.  If you know of any, feel free to post them here—please differentiate between ingredient and technique updaets.  It seems like it might be a good idea to limit this thread to these updates, and put any questions about them in separate posts.
