8 RECIPE MEASUREMENTS

9 Equipment for Measuring Ingredients Dry ingredients, such as flour and sugar, are measured in plastic or metal measuring cups.

10 Equipment for Measuring Ingredients Liquids are measured in transparent glass or translucent plastic liquid measuring cups.

11 Equipment for Measuring Ingredients Liquid measuring cups have a spout for pouring

12 Equipment for Measuring Ingredients Dry and liquid ingredients and fats may be measured using measuring spoons. Small amounts of ingredients are measured using plastic or metal measuring spoons.

13 Measuring Ingredients How to Measure Dry Ingredients

14 Because flour may settle and pack during shipping and storage, stir the flour in its container before you measure. Flour Flour no long needs to be sifted !

15 How to Measure Dry Ingredients Flour Spoon the flour into the dry measure measuring cup, filling to overflowing. Level the flour off by dragging a straight- edged utensil across the top of the measuring cup.

16 How to Measure Dry Ingredients Granulated Sugar Granulated (white) sugar does not pack, so no stirring is required before measuring. Measure granulated sugar using the same method as is used for measuring flour.

17 How to Measure Dry Ingredients Brown Sugar Brown sugar should be firmly packed into the dry measure measuring cup. If you have packed the sugar into the cup properly if it holds its shape when dumped from the measuring cup.

18 How to Measure Dry Ingredients When small amounts of a dry ingredient, such as flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices, are to be measured, use measuring spoons. Small Amounts Overfill the measuring spoon and level off the dry ingredient with a straight-edged utensil.

19 Measuring Ingredients How to Measure Liquid Ingredients

20 Measuring cups for liquid ingredients must be placed on a level surface when measuring. Avoid lifting the cup to read the measure as it will probably tilt causing you to read an inaccurate amount.

21 How to Measure Liquid Ingredients Once the measuring cup is on a level surface add the liquid you wish to measure. Read the level of the liquid by bending down so that the measuring cup is at eye level. Read the liquid’s level at the bottom of the meniscus.

22 How to Measure Liquid Ingredients Small Amounts Small amounts of liquid ingredients may be measured using measuring spoons.

23 How to Measure Fats Oil Oil is measured using the method for measuring liquid ingredients.

24 How to Measure Fats Solid Fats

25 How to Measure Fats Soft Solid Fats Soft fats, such as spreadable margarine or softened butter, can be carefully pressed into a dry measure (avoid trapping air bubbles) and leveled off with a straight-edged utensil.

26 How to Measure Fats Firm Solid Fats Firm fats, such as lard, shortening, cold butter and baking margarine, may be cut from the block, if the package provides measurements for doing so.

27 How to Measure Fats Firm Solid Fats Some firm fats are pre-portioned

28 Measuring Butter How many T are in one stick? How many C are in one stick? How many T in ¼C?

29

30 How many: C in a Pt. Q in a G Pt in a G C in a G Pt in a Q C in a Q

31 VOLUME & WEIGHT EQUIVALENTS 1T = 3 tsp 8T = 1/2c 16 T = 1c For more equivalents – FFT p t = ____T? 24t = ____T? 16T=_____t?

32

33 Write the equivalent measure for each amount. __________4 quarts __________4 cups __________2 pints __________ 2 cups __________16 tablespoons __________4 tablespoons __________ 3 teaspoons __________16 ounces

34 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

37 *EX YEILD 4, YOU WANT 8 8 DIVIDED BY 4 = 2 MULTIPLY ALL INGREDIENTS BY THIS NUMBER CONVERT Increasing the Yield of a Recipe

38 1.DIVIDE THE DESIRED YIELD BY THE RECIPE’S YIELD. *EX. YIELD =12 AND YOU WANT 6 DIVIDE 6 BY 12 CONVERT ALL INGREDIENTS BY THIS NUMBER DECREASE THE YIELD OF A RECIPE

39 Double this recipe Turkey A La King Over Biscuits Combine 1 cup diced cooked turkey; 1 can cream of chicken soup or 1 1/4 cup turkey gravy; 1/3 cup milk; 1 Tbs. instant minced onion; 4 slices American cheese, cut in strips; 2 Tbs. chopped pimento and 2 Tbs. chopped green pepper.
