The 5 Parts of a Recipe - Weebly

The 5 Parts of a Recipe Recipes A recipe is a list of ingredients and directions for preparing a specific food. Not all recipes are written in the same way. Some are easier to follow than others. A recipe in the standard format is a list of all the ingredients in order of use and step-by-step directions for preparing the food. A recipe in narrative format is a paragraph description of the steps and ingredients order of use.

This format is sometimes used in newspapers and magazines because it takes up less space. Things to look for: Does the recipe List the necessary ingredients. State the amount of each ingredient. Provide step-by-step instructions on how to combine the ingredients. Mention the sizes of pans that will be needed. Specify the cooking time and temperature. Estimate the yield, or the number of servings.

When following a recipe: You should 1.Read through the entire recipe. 2.Make sure that you understand all the terms and abbreviations. 3.Assemble all the ingredients and equipment before you start. 4.Do any necessary preparation, such as turning on the oven or greasing the pan. 1. Yield The yield tells the number and size of servings the

recipe will make. Knowing the yield in advance helps one to know if more or less food is needed whether or not to make more or less of the food. Yield 2. List of Ingredients & Amounts Ingredients are listed in the exact amount as needed. The specific form of ingredient is also stated. Ingredients should be listed in the order they are used in the recipe in

order to prevent leaving out any ingredients. List of Ingredients & Amounts 3. Step By Step Directions for Mixing & Handling The recipe should have directions for how to prepare it. The steps need to be listed in the order they should be

done. Numbered steps are easy to follow & help to prevent steps from being skipped. However, some recipes are written in paragraph form, and should be read & followed VERY carefully.

4. Equipment (Container Size & Type) Most recipes do not state ALL the necessary equipment; however, specific equipment such as a 8 x 8 square pan is sometimes listed. It is important to use the stated specific equipment so the food will not overflow or overcook. Containe r Size 5. Temperature & Time

Some recipes give you exact cooking temperatures and times ie. 375F for 15 minutes. Others will tell you how to cook the food ie. Heat liquid until it simmers. Oven temperatures may vary and times are for conventional

ovens unless otherwise stated. Optional: Nutrition Analysis Nutrition information is not necessary for preparing a recipe, but it is very useful information when planning foods to fit into a particular eating plan. Some recipes include number of calories and/or grams per serving of various nutrients.

Identifying Healthful Ingredients Grains look for Whole grain or whole wheat Less processed (rolled oats rather than instant oatmeal) Vegetable look for Vegetables in season or frozen Canned labeled low sodium Fruit look for Fruits in season or frozen Canned without added sugar Diary look for Low fat, fat free milk products or soy, rice, almond milks Cheeses lower in fat (parmesan or feta)

Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Recipe Sleuth ????????

1. Put brackets around the ingredients. 2. Circle the ingredient amounts. 3. Place a star beside the yield. 4. Put a box around the cooking temperature. 5. Underline the cooking time. 6. Put an asterisk * * on either side of the cooking container.

7. Highlight nutritional analysis (if given). Next Slide Answer Key After you have tried to label the parts, check it using the next slide!!! Apple Muffins 1 dozen 2 c. flour tsp. nutmeg tsp. salt 1 egg, beaten
