edited March 13 in Off Topic
Ok, so more and more I understand metric is to calculate % than imperial--and the more things I do like curing and sausage it is quite clear---My struggle is when a Dry Ingredient is in ML vs Grams or MG  IE 15 ML of Pepper WTF how much does that weigh...........Please enlighten this Imperial User

So i think i have it 1 TSP = 5 ML ?

    15ML is a tablespoon. Here’s a pretty neat website with conversion tables.

    If you have an Echo, Alexa can do any conversions you want on the fly.

    Every time I hear the word furlong I think of horse racing and your comment made me think "$100 on Alexa to WIN"

    Trap?  I’ve been using the app 7 or 8 years - converts units in more categories than you knew existed, including the basics: length, weight, temperature, volume...

    Sorry, that was my 13 yo son that got my phone.  He laughs whenever people say unit.

    @theyolksonyou did your son grab your phone too?

    Yeah, but she laughs at me when I step out of the shower now.  Beotch.

    But if you convert to millimeters, whatever you might be measuring in the bathroom sounds enormous.

    Search for "Emsa Perfect Beaker." Has both imperial and metric scale markings. It has a conical shape w. helps dry ingredients pack more uniformly, tho' its lowest marking is 30ml/ccm, 6 teaspoons. Pretty useful, and inexpensive.

    I searched and got this.  Think I'm doing it wrong.
