With more and more members contributing recipes from outside U.S., I think we need a link for conversions!

Here is the one I use………as different ingredients have different weights, you simply put in the ingredient you are using then do the conversions.

If there are others that you use, please list!

Well, I've been browsing around some british recipe sites and wanted to be sure of some terms and I found this…  http://www.ochef.com/947.htm

That particular link was to various sugars, but I see there's one there about flours names as well which we may find helpful as well!

I found this conversion link looking for small teaspoon (still haven’t found it!)…..but I’ve found that US 1 tsp is less than UK 1 tsp!

This is from an Old Australian Food Recipes………converts terms and such, many that we’ve had discussions back and forth with what’s what in each country.  I found it very interesting.

Hi There

Does anyone have a conversion table that includes US cups into UK ounces (dry goods) as well as liquid conversions? I have a few recipes that I would love to post but they are in Imperial (Ounces) measurements as I am from the UK. Also there are so many good recipes on here that I would love to try but can’t convert them into ounces grrr

Thanks for any help.

I think many things can be plugged into the converter on the very first link on this thread Shell.

Also, here’s another one I found.  http://www.france-property-and-information.com/cooking_converter.htm

These links have to do with converting a recipe requirement such as “2 large eggs” into something that will work for the little eggs a pullet or a banty lays, or the big one's a duck lays, or even those medium eggs that you got on sale last week!

Thanks to Vicki in So. CA for these!

I have a problem with Fahrenheit as I work in centigrade!  I have bought cup measures though, which I love…miles better than weighing out.  I used to work in ounces but my kids cook in grams.  Cups are much easier Shell!  Another frustrating (curious/interesting thing) for me are some  ingredients.  I just don't recognise some.  Cornmeal? Caramels? peanut cups?and all those chili varieties  Fantastic!

Hmph… teaspoon US and UK  ~ARE~ different!  That can be a big problem.  Too much baking soda can make things pretty nasty, probably other ingredients too.  1 Teaspoon [US] = 1.387 790 307 7 Teaspoon [UK] 

That link that CindyP posted on post 4 is darn nice!  Very simple and easy to use Delbee, and I've found good conversion sites to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius and vice versa, but just by typing that, “Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius”  you will surely find a good one for yourself too cool 

I'm sure it will be frustrating, but I hope it will also be rewarding!  I found a site a long time ago where you could paste in all the ingredients, and it would change them all for you… but I never quite trust those things, and I lost track of it!

OK, found another one.  Not exactly for conversion, but gives good reference for various types of sugars.
