• Medium

• Weight

• wt.

• Package

• pkg.

• Hour

• hr.

• 3 t = 1 T

• 2 T = 1 oz.

• 4 T = ¼ cup

• 5 1/3 T = 1/3 cup

• 5 T + 1 t = 1/3 c

• 10 2/3 T = 2/3 cup

• 10 T + 2 t = 2/3 c

How many T = 1 cup?

• 1 gal. = 4 qt.

• 1 qt. = 2 pt.

• 1 pt. = 2 c.

• 1 c. = 8 oz.

For Liquids:

• 1 c = 8 oz.

• 1 pt = 2 c = 16 oz.

• 1 qt = 2 pt = 4 c = 32 oz.

• ½ gal = 2 qt = 4 pt = 8 c =64 oz.

Figure it out!

• 1 gal = __ qt = __ pt

= __ c = __ oz

• 1 lb = 16 oz.

• 1 lb butter=2 cups = 4 sticks

How much is in one stick?

There are two kinds of measuring:

• Dry measuring

• Liquid measuring

They each have their own types of equipment and techniques to use.

Note: moist ingredients use same equipment, different techniques.

Dry MeasuringAlways use a dry measuring cup
