Forum rules
Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

How would you measure out 3 grams (of spices) using teaspoons or mililiters? I mean, I don't have anything to measure 3 grams so what would I use to get 3 grams? If someone can help, please tell me! Thanks.

Wow, do they really have a recipe that calls for three grams of Oregano, Ginger or other spice? Sounds more like a lab experiment. LOL

You'll need to do one of the following:

1. Use a scale;

2. Determine what the spice weighs per milliliter or similar unit;

3. Find a cooking guru that works in a lab;

4. Wait for someone else to answer your question. :-)
