Save a Recipe to a Database
Go to contents

After entering a recipe you may save the recipe to a recipe database which is a collection of up to 100 recipes.

The accumulation of recipes in a database may be random or may have some other logic such as recipes which mature at a particular temperature or recipes which have particular similar qualities. The may be recipes associated with a particular person say in a school situation or they may be recipes representing a sequence of changes to a starting point recipe.

Recipe databases are useful because they can be searched by Matrix using recipe names or the qualities entered in the Recipe Info dialog when the recipe was saved.
