I've looked through all my cookbooks but do you think I have any sort of conversion chart?? Noooooooo!!! icon_confused.gificon_cry.gif I am looking at a candy recipe that calls for: 200 grams granulated sugar, 1/2 Litre water and 50 grams confectioners sugar. Can someone tell me in American standard measure how much these measurements would be? I'd greatly appreciate it!! icon_lol.gif

got the google toolbar installed? or have google set as your default search engine?

if so try this.

in the search box type

200 grams in ounces

well look at that -- google has a built in converter!

now try .5 liter in cups

then try 50 grams in ounces.



the key is using the "in" x IN y to get it to convert
------------------

REMEMBER --- the grams conversions are conversions by WEIGHT -- measure using a scale for best accuracy.

Okay I'm going to try the recipe using these measurements:

1 Cup granulated sugar (for the 200 grams sugar)
2 Cups water (1/2 Litre)
1/4 cup 10X sugar (50 grams 10X)

I'll let you know how it works out. Thanks everyone!! thumbs_up.gif
