It is generally not a good idea to scale a recipe up or down
by more than 3 or 4 times. All measurements presented on this
page are in Imperial (U.K.) units.
The Imperial system uses the same units of weight as the
U.S. system. Do not confuse the ounce of weight with the
fluid ounce, because they are not the same; there is no
standard conversion between weight and volume unless you know
the density of the ingredient.
16 ounces = 1 pound
