I made these charts, printed them out, and put them inside one of my favorite cookbooks because I could never remember (and could never find easily) these equivalent measurements when I needed them. I hope you’ll find these charts helpful too. This chart is for fruits.

Thank you for these great equivalent measurement charts. What a help!


These charts are a tremendous help–thanks so much! When my Internet is working, I can look these up, but I’m often visiting in Cape Breton, with Internet available only at the library. I’m printing these out to keep in my favourite cookbook that always travels with me.


Thanks sooo very much. I had no idea what the Zest of one orang would be.


Thank you, thank you, thank you… like you I can never find the equivalents either. This made my day easier.
