converting sugar

Postby leslie » Wed Mar 21, 2007 12:53 am

I am using a cooking scale to make jelly. When I use this chart, it is converting 12 cups of granulated sugar to 5lbs 1 oz. Shouldn't it be 6 lbs, 12 cups x 8 / 16?? Leslie

An ounce of weight (avoirdupois ounce) is different than an ounce of capacity (fluid ounce).
