Measuring sour cream

It's a semi-solid.

Do I use the liquid measuring cup like for milk or water or do I use the "solids" measuring cups like for flour and sugar?

Thanks!

1. Either. The solids measuring cup is fine since the cream won't really spill out...

The only real reason to not use the solid cup for liquids it to prevent the liquid from spilling
when you fill the solid cup to the top.

2. The container lists the content amount

usually in oz.s. Measuring cups read in cups and oz.s. Just approximate the proportion out of the container.

3. you need a solid to get a really level cup.

and to knock out all the air spaces. then it is easier to empty completely with a spatula.

4. The solids cup is easier to get the stuff out of

I usually just eyeball it.

5. Thank you.

My HS home ec teacher was a hard ass about using the right measuring tools.

6. Specifically for the thicker fluids I use a plunger style cup.

Similar to this:


For dry goods like flour and sugar because of settling I measure by weight using a scale.
