Measuring Sticky Ingredients



Before you pour sticky ingredients into a measuring cup, fill with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out.

  • Must try this. - by SLIMTHICK2
  • Great tip! I've also found that if a recipe calls for oil as well as a sticky ingredient (I make a great glaze for chicken with oil, honey, curry powder, and mustard) the sticky ingredient won't stick if you measure the oil first. Just be sure to measure any dry ingredients before the oil! - by JOPPERM2
