Comments: Metric vs. US Measurements


One difficult thing is figuring out whether an ingredient is treated as a liquid, even if it's a solid like sugar or flour.

It was probably DECILITERS (dl) which is a rather common term in recipes when measuring liquids. A dl is a tenth of a liter.

Thanks for the clarification! I still find it a bit strange that American cookbooks use the term, when using grams and kilograms is simple enough. Anyway, I should have taken the time to get the spelling right, oops.
