Spoon measures
« on: October 16, 2018, 21:07 »
When I was learning to cook, Mum's recipes always said 'a tablespoon of' whatever and the spoon was precisely that - a large serving table spoon. The new 'tablespoon' measures just about hold an old dessert spoonful of water, nowhere near as much as an old tablespoon.

So if I use my modern measuring spoons my mum's recipes don't work. Just as well that I still have some old cutlery including serving tablespoons. I wonder how many people have tried old recipes and found they haven't quite worked out properly, but had no idea why  ::)
