Many ganache recipes say to make sure you weigh the ingredients...not to go by volume for the cream. How do you weigh cream??
Thanks for any ideas!

I always just go by "cups" etc. Mine always turns out fine. I guess if you had a kitchen scale you could set it for whatever you were pouring it in then weigh them together, seems like too much effort though, the less steps the better as far as I'm concernedicon_smile.gif

Do you have a measuring cup that tells you the ounces? Like a cup is 8 ozs and so on?

Your measuring cup should have ml on it.

My glass measuring cup has onces, I'm in the USA though.

Even if your measuring cup has ounce or ml marks, that is a volume measurement, not weight. I find it really makes no difference in the final product. I just use the ounces and it is fine. Who wants to go to all the bother to weigh a liquid, anyway?

When it says weigh it, it is talking about the chocolate; not the cream.
