## (*) A note on cooking ingredients measurents

It is difficult to get an exact conversion of cooking ingredients as the density of these substances can vary so much depending on temperature, humidity, how well packaged the ingredient is, etc. These words add even more uncertainty: sliced, chopped, diced, crushed, minced, etc. Therefore, it is better to measure dry ingredients by weight rather than volume as this can be more accurate.
