4. Abbreviations • Gallon • gal. • Quart • qt. • Pint • pt.

5. Abbreviations • Large • lg. • Medium • med. • Weight • wt. • Package • pkg. • Hour • hr.

6. Equivalencies • 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?

7. Equivalencies • 1 gal. = 4 qt. • 1 qt. = 2 pt. • 1 pt. = 2 c. • 1 c. = 8 oz.

8. Equivalencies – fluid ounces 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

9. Equivalencies - pounds • 1 lb = 16 oz. • 1 lb butter=2 cups = 4 sticks How much is in one stick?

10. Measuring ingredients 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.

11. Dry MeasuringAlways use a dry measuring cup • Flour • sift, pour or spoon into dry measuring cup, then level • Sugar • Pour/spoon into dry measuring cup, then level • Rice /Misc. • Scoop out or pour into dry measuring cup • Small amounts • Dip measuring spoons into ingredient or pour onto spoon not over mixing bowl

12. Liquid Measuring Always use liquid measuring cups. • Milk/Water/Liquid • Place measuring cup on counter, pour liquid in, check at eye level. • Vanilla/Small amounts • Pour into a measuring spoon • Hold over small bowl to catch excess. (Not over mixing bowl)
