Looking at recipes and trying to determine how much of an ingredient is needed can be hard. How much is a bunch? How many eggs in a cup? How many onions to a cup? Garlic to a tablespoon?

While the information presented here is not a complete reference, nor is it a definitive answer, hopefully it will provide a useful starting point and be of some assistance.

This reference section shows average size and weights (U.S.) for a variety of Fruits, Vegetables, and other food items.
