Instagram’s “Save to Collection” feature allows a user to collect recipe videos, reels and posts and create a kind of easily accessible cookbook.
Instagram is a great resource for first-time dishes. However, it can quickly become overwhelming, depending on how many accounts a user follows and what subsequent posts are suggested based on a person’s activity on the platform. To help you out, Instagram has a few features that allow someone to save recipe posts for later viewing.
The “Save to Collection” feature is easily accessible through every post on the Instagram feed. As the name suggests, it allows a user to bookmark a post for later review and add it to a folder containing previous posts that have been saved. Ideally, similar posts are grouped into a single collection to avoid confusion once many collections have been saved. Users can access all collections, as well as the publications they contain, through the “Saved” tab.
Tap the ‘Save to Collection’ button (the vertical ribbon icon) in the lower right corner of the post to gain future access to an Instagram reel, video, or post. Next, tap on the “Save to Collection” link that will appear in the lower left corner of the post. This will bring up the “Save to” drawer which will contain all of the existing collection folders. If there is none, press the + to add and name a new collection. For example, if a user intends to collect different types of recipes, choose a collection name that correctly describes the posts that will be saved there, such as “Noodles” or “Dessert”.
To see all the collections so far, tap the Profile icon in the lower right corner of the page, then tap the Menu button (icon with the three horizontal bars) in the upper right corner. Then press “Saved”. While taking a break from the usual Instagram feed, any user can preview all previously saved recipes on the Saved page, sorted by collection. An “All Messages” folder with all bookmarked content in chronologically recorded order will also be present. Tap on each post to preview the recipe needed.
To remove a saved post from a collection, tap the post in the group and then tap the “Save to Collection” button again, so that it is no longer highlighted in white. Then choose between “Remove from collection” or “Remove”. The latter will delete it from wherever the particular message is saved (if it is also filed in another collection). To delete multiple Instagram accounts or posts within a collection, tap the collection you want to delete, then tap the More button (the icon with three dots) in the upper right corner. Then press “Select” and choose the publications to delete, then press “Delete”. The More button also allows a user to delete an entire collection, change the name and cover photo of a collection, and add posts from the entire “Saved” folder. This will include posts that have been saved but not necessarily placed in a collection.
Instagram is full of delicious food content that can be posted to any commercial cookbook. User cj.eats_ posts easy-to-follow reels of delicious Asian fare, while the sisters’ fooddolls will take inspiration from videos of their pasta and slow cooker dishes. Dessert lovers will salivate over the dessert photos of Halfbakedharvest, the recipes of which she shares via her website. User emilymariko, who is credited with an easy-to-make salmon sushi roll that has gone viral on the platform, has other cool and doable Instagram reels to check out. Anyone who bought an air fryer during the pandemic will find airfryeraddicts a great choice for achievable meals. Need inspiration for a recipe? User Everything_delish will likely have a few worth trying, or #easyrecipes, which has over 3 million posts. Almost all types of cuisine are represented on Instagram. Home cooks and budding chefs should have no trouble putting together recipes for their collections curated on the platform.
