MEASURES & MEASURING

In the British system, dry and liquid quarts are the same (1,136.52 cubic cm).

In the U.S. the liquid quart (946.35 cubic cm) is smaller than the dry quart, 1,101.22 cubic cm.

Don't let the difference in liquid and dry measures in the U.S. confuse you. Dry measures are not used in recipes - except for fresh fruits, etc.

Dry measures are mainly used for measuring fresh produce - a pint of raspberries, a quart of strawberries, a gallon of plums, a peck of apples, a bushel of corn, etc. (There is no dry 'cup' measure).

Your measuring spoon, cup, quart and gallon containers are all liquid measurements. And you use the same 'liquid' measurement containers to measure wet and dry ingredients - flour, sugar, water, milk, etc. all are measured the same.

     But always remember the difference in liquid measures when converting recipes from British to U.S. or vice versa.

A British teaspoon, tablespoon, cup, pint, quart or gallon is 1.20 times larger than the same U.S. measurement in recipes.
