    Quick - how much in cups for a 15oz can of broth?

    One of my pet peeves is that CL continues to reference canned broth in recipes but doesn't put down the actual liquid amount for those of us that keep broth on hand.

    I'm not running to the store to buy a can of broth - does anyone know, offhand, how many cups are in a standard can of broth?

    I tried a Search and didn't come up with anything.

    Thanks in advance,
    Barbara

    When you get stumped by these "ounces", just remember to look on your measuring cup. At least mine has ounces on it. There is 8 oz to one cup.

    I know there is 8 oz. to a cup, however some companies mark canned items in weight not volume and since I don't buy canned broth, I have no idea if a 15 oz. can of broth is a weight or volume measurement.

    Thanks,

    I do know that a quart of water weighs 2 lbs -- making each cup weigh 8oz (you take these things into consideration when back packing) and so a mostly water based liquid whould probably be pretty close in weight/volume measure. Solid foods on the other hand can vary. I hope this can be helpful.
