Instructions for Measuring

  • In order to get the best results it is essential to measure accurately all the ingredients, or substances, which go into any food prepared.
  • All measurements in recipes are level. Dry substances in a cup or spoon should be levelled off with the straight edge of a knife.
  • Solid fats should be packed into the cup or spoon and levelled off with a knife. If part of a cup of fat is desired, such as ½ cup, partly fill the cup with water leaving room for the desire amount of fat, in this case fill with ¾ cup of cold water and add enough fat to fill the cup. Then pour off all the water.
  • All teaspoons are not standard size, nor are all tablespoons. It is more accurate, therefore, to have standard measuring spoons or to compare measurements of available spoons with standard size, as for example, comparing with measurements in marked medicine glass. If a half teaspoon measure is required, fill teaspoon, level off, and cut in half lengthwise, removing one half.
