    The Averagely Perfect ESB was the fifth in a continuing series initiated by @VikeMan to “test the Wisdom of Crowds theory in a recipe development process”.

    The links below are to the threads for the AP ESB, in chronological order beginning with the thread suggesting it might be time for another AP crowd-sourced recipe (started February 24, 2017) and ending with “The How My Averagely Perfect ESB Turned Out Thread” (started May 25, 2017).

    Please advise of errors, omissions, broken/misdirected links, etc.
    Feel free to make suggestions for future “How We Got There” threads.
