How to measure butter Hoe om botter af te meet



How to Measure Butter
Have you tried to measure exactly 1 cup of butter (or tablespoon for that matter)? 
Spend forever to squeeze the butter in the cup, making sure there are no spaces,
just to spend more time with a spatula trying to get every little bit of butter out of the cup again?

Q: Is 1/2 lb. of butter the same as 1/2 cup of butter? ( Or margerien or baking margerien like Stork bake or Marvello)
A:  The recipe writers of the world have entered into a conspiracy to make cooking with butter way more complex than it should be. 
In one recipe they ask for a half-cup of butter. In the next, they ask for 8 tablespoons. 
Then they turn around and demand one stick of butter.
 
And the whole time, they're asking for the same thing!
In the US, butter is mostly packaged in 1-pound boxes, with four individually wrapped quarters or sticks. 
In South Africa, butter is packed 250g or 500g.
Sometimes you get a smaller brick.
Or at Woolworths you can get a Stick of Butter.
The margarines are packed in 250g, 500g or 1kg.


Each pound (S.A. 500g)  is roughly two cups of butter.
Each quarter-pound stick is 8 tablespoons or a half a cup. Each tablespoon is 1/2 ounce. 


To thwart the wicked aims of those recipe writers once and for all, we present the following fool-proof
