How to Use and Dry Measuring Cups?

often when people have problems with the
recipe it’s because ingredients weren’t
measured properly that’s particularly
true with baking use liquid measuring
cups for liquid ingredients and dry
measuring cups for dry honestly I can’t
stress how important this is nothing
will throw a recipe off more quickly
than say measuring out your flour using
a liquid measuring cup because you’ll
end up with much more than you need for
the final recipe measuring spoons on the
other hand can be used for both liquid
and dry ingredients place the measuring
cup on a flat level surface before
measuring this goes for both liquid and
dry ingredients level off your dry
ingredients so they’re flush with the
top of the measuring spoon or cup do
this gently using a flat level like a
ruler or the back of a knife and when it
comes to flour gently spoon don’t pack
the flour into the measuring cup packing
will throw off a recipe by adding much
more flour than is called for in the
recipe and don’t scoop the flour using
the same spoon or cup with which you’re
planning to measure this will also pack
the flour now when it comes to brown
sugar go ahead and pack it into the
measuring spoon or cup yes I know this
is the total opposite of flour finally
follow the recipe as it’s written
changing or substituting ingredients
alters the recipe and will almost always
alter the results especially when it
comes to the chemistry of baking

Mason Jar Measuring Cups Buyers’ Guide

How to use a mason jar as a measuring cup?

A mason jar is often used for storing and canning, but can easily work as measuring cups when needed. A half-pint mason jar is equal to 1 cup of ingredients. A pint mason jar can serve as a 2-cup measuring cup. 4 cups can be measured using a quart jar, and 8 cups using a half-gallon jar. For example, if your soup recipe calls for 8 cups or more of water, you can grab a half-gallon mason jar and fill it once, to 1/2″ of the rim. If you are making a porridge for breakfast which needs 6 cups of water, you can use a half-gallon mason jar and fill it three-fourths of the way up.

How accurate is measuring on a mason jar?

The accuracy of measuring on a mason jar depends on the type of the jars you purchase. Some mason jars are designed specifically to be used as measuring cups, so these will have indicated markings on the sides. But, if your mason jars do not have markings, they can still be used as measuring cups and be accurate. Although measurements can be done approximately, if your recipe is super specific about ingredient amounts, then you might be better off using a measuring cup. Otherwise, mason jars are almost entirely accurate when it comes to measuring ingredients for more casual baking or cooking. The multifunctionality of mason jars makes them an ideal tool to have in the kitchen.
