I have a question about the recipe "Whole Wheat Pita" from Erin McDowell. Please clarify the liquid measures in this recipe. ;o) 1 cup of water = 8 fluid ounces, which weighs 8.32 ounces on a typical kitchen scale, or 236 grams (not 226 grams, which is the metric conversion for 8 standard ounces). Thanks so much.

Thanks! For anyone else interested in this recipe, I'll be posting this weekend the ingredient quantities in mass measures (grams) for those of us whose scales don't include decimal based ounces - or who otherwise prefer the convenience of metric. For example, it's so much easier to see the ratios when quantities are expressed in grams. ;o)
