1 cup, halved

< Previous | Next >


Greetings folks!

I'm reading a diet manual and I'm a bit confused when they refers to measurement as "1 cup, halved" (for Strawberries for example).
Does it mean 'A cup and a half' or '1/2 cup'?

Thank you for your enlightenment.

    In recipes, the standard format is to list the amount and the form of the food. Sometimes the form comes after and sometimes before.

    1 cup carrots, diced (or 1 cup diced carrots)
    1 cup onion, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced

    1 cup in American cooking is a measure of volume. 1 cup of water is a lot heavier than one cup of chopped onions.

    So there is no universal direct relationship between cups and grams.
