Josh Play Recipes Conversions Measurement Conversions

While these recipes were written or adapted for use with standard (non-metric, Imperial, American) measurements, many people accessing these recipes are not based in the United States (which refuses to go to the metric system), Canada (which, though officially metric, still understands the Imperial system), or Britain (ditto). Therefore this information has been provided in an attempt to help metric system users convert into measurements that have more meaning to them.
