Subrecipe Names for Ingredient Statements

Posted by

When you make a recipe into a subrecipe, it takes on a double life as an ingredient so you can use it in other recipes (and make your life much simpler in the process!).

The Old Way

When the subrecipe is used in other recipes, it shows up by default in your ingredient statement with the name of the recipe (and subingredients in parenthesis). So it looks like this in the ingredient statement for the final product: "Subrecipe Recipe Name (subingredients as set in the subrecipe ingredient statement)".

You can always change that on the ingredient statement page of a recipe you are using it in, and what you set there will flow through to other recipes. But if you update the subrecipe itself, the software will automatically update the subrecipe's ingredient statement and pull the recipe name again as the ingredient name so that it's all up to date.

The New Way

If you didn't want to use the name of the recipe in the ingredient statement, that automatic update can be annoying, so we've added a field to the ingredient statement page of subrecipes that let's you set how the subrecipe name shows up in ingredient statements.

The field shows up on the ingredient statement page in any recipe that's been turned into a subrecipe. It lets you set once and for all—until you choose to change it— the way the recipe will be shown as an ingredient in all other recipes.

We hope this makes more sense and makes your life a little easier. Let us know if it does!
