How much does a stick of butter weigh?
4 oz, a quarter lb, or 8 Tbsp. That's why they call them Quarters.
Thnx,I wsn't clear - I meant in grams (4 us cooking in foreign lands.) Butter comes in 100g or 250g pkts. here.
There are 28 grams in an ounce, so a US stick of butter should be a little over 100 grams, maybe 110-112. You could probably use the 100g packets as a reasonable substitute.
as much as a new-born panda (they're tiny, the last DC one in '05-ish had the name 'butterstick' before the official one was given.)
This is the best answer thus far.
Immediately made me think of this:
I was thinking of a baby lemur: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=B..., but you have nailed it. Had not though of a panda, as a unit of weight, but think that the US needs to adopt that, especially in regards to butter.
A pound of butter is 454g, 4 sticks to a lb so 113.5g
4 sticks of butter is 1 pound, so 1 stick of butter is a quarter of a pound.
Alternatively, 4 sticks of butter is 454g, so 1 stick is 113.5 -- as TeRReT said.
The google search has a very handy converter. Type in 1/4 pound = grams and it will give you an answer. You can also use "to" in place of the equals sign.
If you have iPhone 4s, Siri can answer your math question very quickly.
If you have graduated from a real middle school, then you should able to do your own math. :P (I am not criticizing you, just being funny and truthful).
