Please give complete information.
  Including brand names of ingredients is helpful.

Take very accurate weights and/or measurements of each ingredient. These amounts should be for a complete batch as it is prepared. Do not do conversions.

  If you are listing weights of ingredients, you should use an accurate scale. If you are using a whole container of another product as an ingredient, you can obtain the content weight from that label. Do not confuse fluid ounces (8 fl. oz. in a cup) with weight ounces (16 ounces in a pound). They are not the same!

Weight or Volume (you must fill this in)


raw, dried, frozen, powder,
bottled, canned, etc.
