It struck me, reading this post, that in these forums, it is probably best to be sure always to give the number of milliliters, because the size of the standard teaspoon varies from country to country. Not only that, but fluid ounces are slightly different in size, and the number of ounces per pint is also different. Using the wrong measuring implements for the recipe just doesn’t work.
This literally drove me hysterical one night years ago, when I was living in London and wanted to make pumpkin pie from an American recipe. Couldn’t figure out why nothing worked right, until I sat down with a good reference book and saw the differences!
