    YOU DO KNOW THAT ALL CAPS IS EQUIVALENT TO SHOUTING, right?

    Salsa... I cannot think of an easier recipe to scale.

    But.

    There is always the exception to a rule.

    Would you mind posting the recipe in question?

    Makes it way easier to visualize.

    When increasing the recipe just watch your salt.

    It usually doesn't take x8 salt for a x8 recipe.

    Jim,

    Does that apply to most "seasonings"?
