EA is each but I do not understand 1 ea for sugar. What cookbook did it come from?

Each, meaning a piece, a single thing. For sugar, could it mean a cube?

Sometimes recipes are just flat out badly written.

Does the "each" mean "each single recipe"?

By my understanding it stands for each as in if the recipe is for 4 person/serving you have to use 2 pieces of tomato for each servings.
I may be completely wrong as my native language is not english, but in my language and concept of cooking it means that.
