Hi everyone! I searched the threads and couldn't find an answer to this so I hope it's okay to post.
How do you all measure your veggies? I ask because depending on how you cut up the vegetable, you could have different amounts equal 2 cups. For example, if I sliced a cucumber into thick slices and another into small diced pieces, the thick slices are going to fill up 2 1-cup measuring cups with less cucumber overall than the amount of cucumber it takes to fill 2 1-cup measuring cups full of diced cucumber. I'm not sure if I am explaining that well so I can clarify if it doesn't make sense, but I tried it and it definitely is a different amount overall (even though they both are "2 cups") and a different weight too.
So, is there a standard for the size you are supposed to measure (e.g., chunks, slices, cubes)? I'm curious how you measure your vegetables in general; the cucumber is just an example.
Thanks in advance for your help!
