Practical Ratios for Some Food-storage Items

These equivants and replacements are by Wendy DeWitt in a PDF document at the BYU Broadcasting website whose Living Essentials program she graced as guest expert on solar cooking.

See http://www.byubroadcasting.org/livingessentials/files/406AdditionalResources.pdf for recipes and explanations for solar cooking.

However, the first part of that page was copied and reformatted because unreadable and unusable in the inconsistent and chicken-scratch notation used.

* Flour volume is very subjective: 3-1/3 cups of sifted flour can weigh considerably less than 1 pound and the same volume of compacted flour can weigh considerably more. Flour is best measured by weight, however, American recipes never use weight. If you can recast the recipes you intend to use from volumetic quantities to quantities by weight, they will be a lot easier to realize in low-tech environments.
