Ingredients will always appear in the first column now. So make matches in this column first.
It will then come out in the third column. Try to prepare a vertical striped candy there.
Avoid allowing the ingredients to enter the spots where they cannot exit the board. If the ingredients are stuck in a stuck zone, try to swap them away - or just quit the level, as with five colours there will be practically no chance ever.
Try not to make matches involving the second column because the ingredient might "slide" into it.
If the ingredient slides into the second column, focus on matching and swapping the ingredient into the third. However, this usually takes more matches then the level has.
