Cookbook | Recipes | Ingredients

The gram or gramme (old BE), abbreviated g, is a unit of weight. It is equal to one thousandth (¹⁄,₀₀₀ [0.001]) of a kg. There are 454⁵⁄₁₁ (454.54) g per pound. Since there are sixteen (16) ounces in a pound, there are 28⁹⁄₂₂ (28.409) g in one ounce. As many recipes have been crudely converted from one system to another, a similarly crude conversion back may yield the original recipe. (Cooking is not rocket science.)
