How to Measure Wet and Dry Ingredients?

hey everybody thomas joseph here with
another kitchen conundrum for you now
today we’re going back to the basics
with measuring you need to learn how to
measure correctly to have success when
you are making recipes so today i’m
going to show you how to do that
starting off two different types of
measuring cups we have a wet measuring
cup and we have a dry measuring cup here
now when you’re using a dry measuring
cup this is for things like flour and
sugar and brown sugar you can also
measure things like mayonnaise and sour
cream in a dry measure anything that you
can actually level off that is what
you’re going to use this for now for
something that you would use a wet
measure for would be anything that will
level itself off so that you can see it
with those lines so liquids they would
go into this measuring cup here I’m
going to start with dry measuring now
flour main ingredient in baking here
what you need to know is that you
shouldn’t dip your cup right into the
canister itself because what that does
is it packs flour into the cup so take a
scoop or spoon and gently mix the flour
lightening it incorporating a little bit
of air because as this canister of flour
sits on your shelf
it actually compacts itself it settles
on itself so give it a little bit of a
fluff here and scoop it into your cup
sprinkling it in using that offset
spatula anything with a straight side
you want to give the cup a little bit of
a tap settling in any air pockets that
might be in this cup of flour and a good
swipe leveling it off and that is a
perfect 1/2 cup of flour now if a recipe
calls for sifted flour what that means
is that you need to sift the flour first
and then measure from this bowl measure
this mixture here what that means is
you’re getting a lighter cup of flour
something that isn’t so heavy now
something like sugar sugar is already
dense so there’s no need to stir it up
and you don’t need to scoop into the cup
you can simply dip your cup into the
canister itself and give it a good swipe
and the weights would be completely
consistent here this is a perfect 1/2
cup
sugar now brown sugar we get a lot of
questions here in the test kitchens how
do I keep my sugar from getting too hard
keep it in a well sealed container one
of these airtight containers is really
great take a piece of bread some people
like to use a piece of apple and store
it in with your brown sugar and it will
help to keep the sugar nice and soft
take your measuring cup dip it into the
brown sugar and pack the sugar into the
cup most recipes call for packed brown
sugar now you know you’ve done this
right if you tap it out into a bowl and
the sugar holds its shape if it crumbles
that means that you haven’t packed it
firmly enough and that you should start
over so now for liquid measurements use
a spouted glass measuring cup here and
when you’re measuring things like honey
or molasses anything that’s sticky and
viscous sometimes corn syrup give your
glass a spray with some nonstick cooking
spray and what that does is it will
easily slide out on you so I’m using
honey today a half cup measure you want
to check your measurement and you
actually should bend down and check that
it registers a half a cup so that it’s
nice and level and a half cup so this is
good to go and that’s how you measure a
liquid ingredient so now to measure by
weight what you need is a digital scale
for this and certain recipes will call
for ingredients by weight chocolate for
example or fruit whenever you’re baking
so take the bowl that you’re going to
measure in to place it on the scale and
you need to zero out or tear out the
weight of the bowl itself so that you
don’t count that in the measurement so
all you have to do is press the button
again it should register zero and now
you’re ready to measure the weight of
whatever ingredient you have so there
you have it a few simple tricks and tips
and measuring ingredients the right way
and that will set you up for success in
the kitchen if you have any kitchen
