Food Measurement Equivalents to Remember


Here's a few helpful measurement equivalents to keep in mind. I found these in an old cookbook; (what the heck is a gill anyway?) You never know, there may be a time when you are stuck on a desert island, with just a tablespoon, and find yourself having to cook dinner for the natives! Ha! *smile*

3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon                         4 tablespoons = 1/4 cup
5 1/3 tablespoons = 1/3 cup                          8 tablespoons = 1/2 cup
10 2/3 tablespoons = 2/3 cup                       12 tablespoons = 3/4 cup
16 tablespoons = 1 cup                                 1/2 cup = gill
2 cups = 1 pint                                                 4 cups = 1 quart

4 quarts = 1 gallon                                          8 quarts = 1 peck
4 pecks = 1 bushel                                         16 ounces = 1 pound
32 ounces = 1 quart                                        8 ounces liquid = 1 cup

1 ounce liquid = 2 tablespoons                     Dash = less than 1/8 teaspoon
