Yum! Macintosh recipe software goes commercial

Yum!Yum!, the recipe collection software for Macintosh, has been purchased from Tasmanian developer Nik Sands and is now being offered commercially by Dare to be Creative Ltd. of Vienna, Austria.

Yum! enables users to easily collect, organize, email and print recipes. It also can generate shopping lists based on recipe ingredients, and scale measurements to adjust for the number of servings desired.

I’ve been a Yum! user for years, and find it quite handy when I run across recipes on newspaper Web sites or other sources that I want to keep. All one needs do is create a new recipe file, copy and paste the ingredients list in one box and the preparation instructions in another, type in a few other details (the recipe’s name, source and oven preheat temperature), and save the file. Preference choices make it simple to make measurement units and abbreviations consistent for all recipes.

The current version of Yum! is 3.0.1 and requires Macintosh 10.5 (Leopard) to run. It can be downloaded as a trial version, and purchased for $19.95. Previous versions for 10.4 (Tiger), 10.3 (Panther) and 10.2 (Jaguar) are available at no charge, but are no longer supported.
