This easy to use companion calculator to the above proportional calculator is all that is needed to complete your recipe yield conversion.
Thats all there is to it!
EXAMPLE: Your current recipe serves 4 and you need it to serve 6. Using the proportional calculator above [First one at the top of the page.], you will obtain a 1.5 factor.
Now enter all of your original recipe ingredient quantities and an optional brief description, in the column labeled "Ingredient Quantity and Description." I have filled in a few items so you may see how it's done and also test the system. I have also entered the 1.5 scale factor as indicated above. Then click on the "Scale This Recipe" button and view your answer(s) in the last column labeled "New Calculated Quantity." These are the quantities you will need to use to serve 6 people.
When you are ready to begin, just erase my entries from the fields above.
Enter the amount in the first field then click outside of the field to get the results.
