CraigS Mudcat Cookbook Submissions Needed! (82* d) RE: Mudcat Cookbook Submissions Needed! 26 Mar 03


SOme differences which should be noted:

American ounces are very similar to Avoirdupois (GB) ounces; the US ounce is slightly larger, but only to theoreticians.

A US pint is 16 ounces, a GB pint is 20 ounces. In the US, a pint of water weighs a pound, in GB a pound and a quarter.

There are some differences in the names of things, such as celeriac and fennel, depending on where you come from in GB, US, or Europe. Pictures of what you are using would be good in these cases.

If everything is expressed in ounces, things will be absolutely clear.
I had an old cookbook which gave conversions from US to GB meanings, but I can't find it. I think a cup meant six fluid ounces in the US and five in GB, but I'm not certain.

Converting to metric - 1oz = 28.4g,   1 fl.oz = 28.4ml
Most cookbook conversions use 25g to the oz and tell you to stick to one set of measures only.
