Measuring Applesauce, Honey, Agave, Peanut Butter or Shortening

Measure these ingredients in dry measuring cups. Fill to top cup and level off by making a clean scrape across top of measuring cup with rubber scraper.

Often people will eyeball these ingredients and by doing this could cause inaccuracies in measurements and cause recipes to fail.

Use liquid measuring cups (Pyrex)

Accuracy is important. Set the cup on level surface. Look at measurements at eye level. The liquid should line up directly with the line on the side of the measuring cup.
