Is there any way to format a text file to allow for easy import?  So far, I've been manually making each file into a .grmt formatted file, but this is far too time consuming, as each ingredient requires the amount, unit, item, and key to be edited - along with other edits.

For example, below is my recipe (plain text) for no cook barbecue sauce, that I would like to put into gourmet via import - if I know how to format this one, I can apply the to the 200+ remaining recipes I want to import,,.


(If you can also show how to put in title, yield, etc, I would appreciate it.. for this recipe, that info is below)
