A recipe that I am following uses cherry tomatoes and r/o

  • l

asks for 1 1/2 cups of cherry tomatoes. How do you measure 1 1/2 cups of cherry tomatoes? Do you use that liquid measure cup or those stainless steel dry measure scoops or convert cup to a scale measurement and use a scale? Please help as I have seen this sort of thing before and not sure what to do...

  1. Any kind of mesauring cup/scoop shuld work- a cup is a volume measurement, with something like cherry tomatoes a lot of the 1.5 cups will be just air but that's ok

      Hey, one more thing--I'm guess by the subject name that you are the same person who posted as "shopping for" below (if not I'm sorry and the old addage about assuming applied). One of the chowhound rules is that you choose a handle or tag (either your first/last name or something creative and distinctive) and use the same one in all your postings so people can get to know you. In any event welcome to chowhound! This is a fun (though addictive) place...
