Liquids, How to Measure
A quick and easy tip for getting the right amount every time.
When measuring liquids, use the smallest measuring cup size you have that is large enough to hold the amount needed. For example, to measure 1/2 cup milk, you'd use a 1-cup measuring cup instead of 2-cup measuring cup. Place the cup on a level surface, then bend down to check the amount.
To measure sticky liquids such as honey, molasses and corn syrup, lightly spread the cup with oil first or spray with cooking spray, so the liquid will be easier to remove.
