Measuring Sticky Ingredients

When measuring lard, shortening, peanut butter, or other such ingredients, I use the displacement method for easy measuring and clean-up.


For example, if you need a 1/2 cup of lard for your pie crust, fill a one cup measuring cup with 1/2 cup water. Using spoon, add lard, pushing it down under the water with each spoonful, until water level reaches 1 full cup. VOILA! 1/2 cup of lard.

Need one cup? Use a larger measuring cup.
