A question about a recipe: Fried Greens Meatlessballs

181df931 e267 4322 b9e3 abc562f43017  10friedgreenmeatlessballs3

I have a question about the recipe "Fried Greens Meatlessballs" from Alexandra Stafford. Just want to confirm... when you say "8oz" of greens, that means weight, right? (ie. 225g) I find sometimes oz means weight, and sometimes it means volume, and I like to always check because there doesn't seem to be a convention as to whether it's weight or volume intended. Thanks!

Hi Michelle, yes it means weight. Also, know that they are forgiving in regard to the amount of greens—use more or less (within reason). Good luck! I love these.

Ounces used for volume is probably used for liquids. American glass measuring cups use both cups and ounces as units. It is confusing if you haven't always done it that way.
