Liquid Measure Equivalents in Cooking

Sometimes you just need to know just how many pints in a quart… we all have momentary lapses… or how maybe you need to know how many tablespoons are in ½ cup… whatever the reason, it’s always good to have an Equivalent Chart around to help you.

This Equivalents Chart for Liquid Measures also comes in handy when adjusting recipes to increase or decrease the amount of servings. The easiest way to adjust a recipe is to break down the ingredient amounts to basic units first before increasing or decreasing them. Remember to keep the ratios the same… if you divide one in half.. do the same to the others… or if you double one, double them all….

After you’ve done the math… the next step is to convert it into the largest units of measure to make the actual measuring of ingredients the easiest.
