2.7.4 Miscellaneous

1 UK pint is about 6 dl or 600 ml
1 UK liquid oz is 0.96 US liquid oz.

a "stick" of butter or margarine weighs 4 oz and is
1/2 cup US.
each 1/4 cup or half stick butter or margarine in
US recipes weighs about 50 g.
there are 8 tablespoons in 1/4 pound butter

Gelatine is available in sheets, as well as in powdered form. The
following is from a post by Sophie Laplante.

It looks like there are different size sheets, and different size
packets (US vs Europe). So the only way to go is to convert by weight.
In France, powdered gelatine does not come in packets; in the UK
it appears that it does, but the packets are larger than in the US.

One Knox powdered gelatine envelope (US) = 1/4 oz, about 7 grams.

1 (US) envelope     = 7 g,
                    = 7 1-gram sheets,
                    = 4 1.66-gram sheets,
                    = 3 or 3 1/2 2-gram sheets.

1 (Europe) envelope = 11 g
                    = 11 1-gram sheets,
                    = 6.5 or 7 1.66-gram sheets
                    = 5 2-gram sheets
