ING File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open an ING file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .ING files.

What is an ING file?

The files that contain the .ing file extension are files that have been created by the MasterCook software application.

MasterCook is a recipe software product that provides users with more than 5,000 different recipes to choose from. MasterCook also allows users to add their own recipes to their MasterCook recipe book and enter notes into the recipes that have been provided by the software. This provides a virtual, no-mess recipe collection.

The ING files that the MasterCook software uses contain recipe ingredient files for the recipes that have been saved within the MasterCook application. Each ING file contains the ingredients for a different MasterCook recipe.
