when I read recipes and come across 'use one cup of cashew nuts'..
how much is 1 cup? I mean there are various sizes of cup..
sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but Id like to know.

take a measuring cup (http://www.google.ca/images?client=safari&rls=en&q=measuring+cup&oe=UTF-8&redir_esc=&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1082&bih=718) out... and put in cashews to the one cup level amount.
that's one cup.

Do you use the metric system?
Here is an online conversion table that might help you:
You can enter the units you are starting from (1 cup) and it will convert for you to the system of measurement you're familiar with. Good luck!!

This brings up a similar question - does one cup of soaked/sprouted nuts/seeds mean one cup of dry nuts/seeds prior to "soaking/bloating/sprouting" or one cup AFTER they have soaked? If after, what do you do with the leftovers?

I have a question, too- I tried a cookie recipe ( I think it was Allissa's- it had macadamia nuts, bananas, I can't remember what else) but it called for a cup of bananas and I assumed that meant mushed up bananas, the way a recipe for something cooked would call for. It didn't apparently, because the cookies never took cookie shape, they were basically dehydrated cookie dough (very tasty, btw). I wonder if there are other measurements anyone has dealt with like this, where a measurement doesn't mean the same thing whether it's cooked or raw?:juicy:
