Market to Menu Measures

I thought the following measure might help when grocery shopping and figuring how much is needed for various recipes.  It is a handy guide for me.  Hope it helps someone!

FRESH
Apples - 1 C sliced or chopped = 1 medium apple
               1 pound = 3 medium apples

Banana - 1 C mashed = 3 medium

Bell peppers - 1/2 C chopped = 1 small
                         1 C chopped = 1 medium
                         1 - 1/2 C = 1 large

Carrots - 1 C shredded = 1 large
                2 1/2 C sliced = 1 pound

Celery - 1 C chopped = 2 medium stalks

Corn - 1 C kernels - 2 medium ears

Green beans - 4 C cooked = 1 pound fresh

Lettuce - 2 cups shredded = 5 oz.
               6 cups torn pieces = 1 lb.

Mushrooms - 2 1/2 C chopped = 8 oz. fresh
                       2/3 C sliced = 4 oz. can

Onions - 1 C chopped white = 1 large

Oranges - 1 C juice - 3 medium

Peaches - 4 C sliced = 8 medium

Potatoes - 1 C bites size chunks = 1 medium
                 1 C sliced = 1 medium

Strawberries - 2 C sliced = 1 pint fresh

Tomatoes - 1/2 C chopped = 1 small
                   1 C chopped = 1 large

OTHER THAN FRESH
Bacon - 1/2 C crispy cooked and crumbled = 8 slices

Bread crumbs - 1 C dry = 5 slices toasted

Bread cubes - 1 C = 2 slices

Cheese - 2 C shredded = 8 oz.

Meat - beef, pork, chicken 1 C chopped or crumbled = 6 oz.

Pasta - 4 C cooked macaroni = 2 C uncooked
            4 C cooked egg noodles = 5 C uncooked
            4 C cooked spaghetti = 8 ounces uncooked

Rice - 2 C cooked instant = 1 C uncooked
           4 C cooked brown = 1 C uncooked
           4 C cooked white = 1 C uncooked
           3 C cooked wild = 1 C uncooked

Saltines - 1 C crushed = 29 crackers

Vanilla wafers - 1 1/2 C crushed = 38 cookies

So there you have it.  I think this chart makes it a little easier figuring out how much you need for a recipe.  It's a handy reference to keep close by - when you are writing up your grocery list and planning your meals.

HAPPY COOKING!

  2. That is handy. I like American recipes which use cups rather than weighing ingredients.

    1. Me too!!! I have seen a lot of cooking shows that weigh everything and I don't really like them as well as the others.
      Cups is easy!

  8. This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited here online on the 17 June and i saw a marvelous testimony of Tracie Adana from United States on the forum about the good works DR.tunde I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before. No body would have been able to convince me about it not until DR.tunde did a marvelous work for me that restored my marriage of 4 years by getting back my husband back i just as i read on the internet. I'm Carolina peter I was truly shocked when my husband knelt down pleading for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of words to use to show my appreciation to DR.tunde For his a God sent to me and my entire family for divine restoration of my marriage.
