Useful List of Before and After Measurements

With all the cooking we do we often like to create a shopping list to know what we will be needing. To do this is not always easy especcially when apples and oranges do not come in cups. Therefore we have to adjust our thinking and here is a list that may help you do that

3 medium apples averages about 2 3/4 c pared, diced, or sliced apples

4 bananas whole averages about 2 cups sliced or 1 1/3 cups mashed bananas

1 medium lemon will make an average of 3 T juice and about 2 t grated peel

1 medium orange averages around 1/4 to 1/3 c juice and 1/2 c diced or sections

1 medium peach averages 1//2 c sliced peaches

1 qt strawberries will average 4 c sliced

1 small cabbage will produce an average of 5 c shredded or 2 cups cooked

12 medium ears of corn will give you 2 1/2 cups cooked corn

hope these averages help you with your summer cooking.
