Explaining how to make something (food) in sign language

Like describing an object in ASL, giving an instruction on how to prepare or cook something involves a fairly heavy amount of classifiers.

Remember these pointers below when translating a recipe:

State a noun first before using its classifier.

Merge the ingredients and steps together. E.g. Mix 2 cups of flour and 1 tsp of baking together together. Add one tsp of vanilla extract to the bowl, etc.
