Note: At this time, we're currently supporting all public websites that use Schema.org to markup their recipes.

This article will explain how you can import a recipe from the web:

All ingredients we were able to match with in our database (which includes custom ingredients you've added yourself) will be indicated with a green checkmark. Unmatched ingredients will require a "Category" be matched. Additionally, any ingredient you simply don't want to include can be removed at this stage by clicking the "x" icon to the right of each ingredient.
