# Pint of sour cream?

The recipe calls for 1 pint of sour cream, and the sour cream container says that it is 8 oz. Is that 1 pint?

Relevance

I learnt this at school almost 60 years ago, and still remember it

16oz =1 lb

14lbs =1 stone

2 stone =1 quart

4 quarts=1 cwt

20 cwt=1 ton

Maybe this will be of help to you:

Imperial to Metric

1.5pints = 1 litre

18floz = 500mls

14 fl oz = 400ml

10floz (1/2pint) = 300ml

7floz(1/3pint) = 200ml

3.5floz = 100ml

2floz = 50ml

8 oz is a cup, 16 oz is a pint; this old rhyme will help you remember "A pint's a pound the whole world round."

Nope! A pint is 16 oz the world over!

.

Eight ounces is a cup. There are two cups in a pint, so you'll need two containers.

My daughter learned that the Queen Pee Pee'd in the Cup Cup--which translates Q(uart) contains 2 P(ints) which contains 2 C(ups). A little uncouth but it worked! She still remembers and is grown now. We just had to memorize it when I was in school :)
