How to scale up a recipe came up on the weekend. A spice company is working with a co-packer and the recipe just isn’t working out right. What a great topic to write about.

Nectarine pie I'm sexy

When I was making pies, I found some recipes were ok to triple them, just not more than 3 or 4 from one recipe. The ingredients got a little crazy and behaved badly. Many mistakes happened, some worked out well and some no so good. This pie is named “I’m Sexy,” it was one of mistakes. A pie made from Nectarines rather than peaches. I’ll let you figure out the rest of the story.
