Recipes listing liquid measurements in ounces and cups are of little use when you’re faced with purchasing a very solid piece of fruit, especially if you’re extracting fresh juice from a less common ingredient like pomegranate or coconut. Good luck making that watermelon punch without any idea of how many hulking melons to buy.
