How much is a stick of butter?
1 stick (East of the Mississippi) = 1 cube (West of the Mississippi) = 4 ounces = 1/2 cup
So in metric 1 stick is about 125 grammes?
The label on mine reads 113.4 grams or 4 ounces
Thanks Pete, Just not very familiar with oz, ounces, sticks and cups......
I grew up fully metric
Non whipped 1/2 cup or 4 fluid ounces. But be careful some manufacturers are cutting down weights on margarine, cream cheese and butter. Read the labels (like a half gallon continer of ice cream now is 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 quarts yet in same size container.) Its called The Screw the Consumer rule!!!!! Manufacturer who does this most is KRAFT and then on top of that they add more water to their products in particular Cream Cheese.If you notice some of the cream cheeses in the dairy cases now say cream cream cheese spread.
