What does this notation mean? - BarbaraS - 10-14-2009
From "The Best Clam Chowder": 1 # sized potatoes, peeled, and cubed into half inch cubes Does it mean 1 pound? Barbara Re: What does this notation mean? - Gourmet_Mom - 10-14-2009
That would be yes....I'm thinking. Re: What does this notation mean? - chef_Tab - 10-14-2009
Yes, that is the symbol for pound. So how about the rest of the recipe? I would like to judge if it is in fact the "best"! Re: What does this notation mean? - HomeCulinarian - 10-14-2009
Correct: # = pound Re: What does this notation mean? - Gourmet_Mom - 10-14-2009

Thanks for the info!! My Mom is looking forward to the chowder!! Barbara Re: What does this notation mean? - HomeCulinarian - 10-14-2009
I don't know about the can sizes. So, now it's after 5 and I'm distracted easily, so I looked for what the meaning of # really is and found an interesting website, Symbols.com that explains probably every symbol ever drawn since the beginning of time! |
