Continuing with "Miscellaneous Tables Compromising Various Things Worth Knowing"
I'm going to skip the most boring stuff but I thought it was interesting (okay so I'm probably the only one and a bit odd...) that :
apples, green, a bushel-50 lbs.*
feathers-a bale=about 1 cwt (cwt is the traditional symbol for the hundredweight)
fish-a quintal-100 lbs. (a quintal is metric unit of mass, approx. 220 lbs.)
molasses, a hogshead- 130 to 150 gallons* (In the US a unit of volume equal to about 2 barrels or 63 gallons)
tea, a chest= 60 - 84 lbs*
Wood, a tod (tod is German for "load")=28 lbs
*in most states but varies
And now a recipe for fried lettuce:
Chop lettuce and the tops of 2 onions fine, add 2 well beaten eggs, put a little salad oil or butter into a frying pan, and pour in the mixture well beaten; cover, stir up when well heated and serve with vinegar or lemon juice, or without either according to taste.
mmmmmmyummmmeeeee ...let me know if you try this :)
Aren't you glad you stopped by? My wish for you: May you never run out of wood for your fire, salt for your cookin' or love from your family and friends.
