INTRODUCTION Preparing recipes begins with knowing what measuring utensils to use and how to measure common ingredients properly. Success partly depends on how accurately the ingredients are measured. Knowing measuring techniques, recipe abbreviations, and equivalents will start you on the right track. After completing this module, you should be able to interpret abbreviations (a shortened form of a word) used for measurements, identify common measurement equivalents (two or more amounts that are equal to each other), and demonstrate how to measure ingredients properly for a given recipe. OBJECTIVES 1. Identify standard measuring equipment. 2. Measure ingredients with proper procedures. 3. Identify basic symbols and abbreviations. 4. Identify basic measurement equivalents. 5. Practice recipe math. 6. Demonstrate proper laboratory clean-up procedures.

Read about Scott s measuring procedures and see if you can find his mistakes. There are 4 major goofs. List the goofs on the left side of your own paper. Then explain how to do each one correctly on the right side of the paper. Label the left side Scott s goofs. Label the right side Correct Way to Measure. The first ingredient the recipe called for was flour. Scott got out the flour canister, put flour in the measuring cup, and tapped the cup on the counter to be sure it was full, patted the heap, and then leveled it off. The next ingredient was brown sugar. Since the grains seemed to stick together, he tried to sift it to separate the grains. Then the recipe called for butter or margarine. Scott found some margarine sticks in the refrigerator. He needed a cup of margarine, so he used two sticks. He also needed ¾ cup milk. He poured the milk into a ½ cup and a ¼ cup dry measuring cup, giving him ¾ cup. Next he had to measure two teaspoons of baking powder. He got a table setting spoon from the silverware drawer and took two scoops of baking powder, leveling off each one. Scotts GoofsCorrect way to Measure
