Ok I have a recipe from my great great grandmother. It has weird measures.What are they?
Walnut size butter
1/2 a gill
and a term I have never heard avoirdupois.
Walnut-sized butter is about 2 Tablespoons. A gill is different for American fluid ounces (4 ounces) versus British fluid ounces (5 ounces) so 1/2 would be 2 ounces. A gill is a measurement of volume (liquid). Avoirdupois refers to a weight measurement system. Hope this helps!
