Ok, recipe costing wizards.... how would you handle this one.
We have a purchased item Luxardo Cherries that contains cherries and juice.
We use the individual cherries in some recipes and the cherry juice in other recipes.
I know the count of the cherries and I know the volume of the juice, so I could easily get portion costs for either one:
1 $31.90 can yields 110 cherries thus each cherry = 29¢
1 $31.90 can yields 52 oz-fl of juice thus each oz of juice = 61¢
If I were only using the cherries or the juice, my recipe costing would be fine, but since I use both, then the per unit of each is artificially increased.
