There was some discussion earlier this week about medieval sugar  
processing. Someone mentioned the work by Gavan MacBane. I just  
finished getting Gavan's paper added to the FOOD-SWEETS-DECORATED  
section of the Florilegium.

Because of some oddity in Word that causes the RTF version of this  
file to balloon from 3 Mbytes in Word format to 220 Mbytes in RTF  
format, I have chosen to store this file on the website in Word  
rather than RTF format. Unfortunately, while working with this file,  
I also discovered that because of the way Word 2003 generates HTML  
code, compared to Word 98 and because my conversion program was  
written for Word 98's HTML output, the link in the file to the text  
and RTF versions is not always being created. I will work on that  
upon my return from Pennsic.

I the meantime, for those who might need it, the Word version of this  
article is available at:
