What Can I Make With
Ingredients On Hand?
To find recipes that use ingredients in your pantry:
a text file called “pantry.txt” in your NYC \user folder that
contains the ingredients in your pantry (one ingredient per line in the
NYC and open the recipe selection window (Recipes… Recipes…).
the recipe selection list, make sure the “All Recipes” radio
button is selected, then press the Search... button.
- In the
search keyword window, select “across cookbooks” to widen the
search to all recipes in all cookbooks.
Select "only", then press the “…”
button to the right of the textbox and select your
“pantry.txt” file in the file dialog. The “ingredients” box should
now be the only one checked in the frame to the right of the keywords
the Search button.
You should now have a search results list with recipes
wherein each recipe ingredient contains a keyword from your pantry.text
file. This operation works best if your cookbook has many recipes and
your pantry.txt file has lots of ingredients.
To widen the search, do the search using "any of"
rather than "only", tag the results, and then do a Search on the
tagged list for certain combinations of ingredients.
