metric to imperial
I live in a metric-system country, but I'm American and own a lot of American cookbooks. I have all my yankee measuring cups and spoons with me, but have a huge problem measuring butter. One stick (i.e. 1/4 pound, or eight tablespoons) equals 113 grams. Here, most butter comes as a 1 kilo cylinder, with the wrapper indicating the 100 gram marks. Does anyone have a relatively easy (way doesn't have to be too precise) to turn 1 kilo of butter -- 2.2 pounds -- into the 1/4 pounds that all my cookbooks require? I don't own a scale, but am seriously thinking about buying one.
