Measuring Herbs November 15, 2013

Grammar is not only important in school, but also in recipes! The comma, for example, can lead to 2 different situations when cooking. For example, a recipe that calls for “1/4 cup basil, chopped” would imply that you first measure 1/4 cup basil, then chop; while “1/4 cup chopped basil” implies that you first chop the basil, then measure 1/4 cup of the already chopped herbs.

If you’re now worrying that you’ve forever chopped your herbs the wrong way, fear not! It works out to be roughly the same amount in both scenarios. And luckily with cooking, a little less or a little more herbs ain’t gonna hurt nobody!
