How to Pick a Recipe

I wrote web-application to pick/compare recipes, calculate hydrations and percentages, perform conversions.  


You can now compare foreign recipes to American recipes, convert, etc. I have a couple examples from TheFreshLoaf.


1. Walnut Raisin Sourdough Bread from SFBI Artisan II - Walnut Raisin Bread Baking Calculator Results



2. Erics Fav Rye - Rye Baking Calculator Results


The results answer some of the questions asked by posters.


All results were generated by the baking calculator


A short guide How to Pick a Recipe talks about how the baking calculator works.


great loaves,


Michael

That's something that I need all the time - I convert everything to metric, except for teaspoons or some liquid measures. It's helpful to convert a whole recipe, not only separate units.


Thanks for sharing,


Karin
