I thought I remembered seeing posts on here all the time about the weight of a cup of shortening. I have a food scale and this last time I needed shortening I went with cheaper store brand in the tub figuring I can measure by weight (I hate scraping it out of the cups!!). But I couldn't find it!! I vaguely remember 7 ounces, but can't remember if that is 1 cup or 2!!!
1 cup shortening = 7 oz
