Dry Pint Basket



A Dry Pint Basket is a measurement of volume, used mostly for fruits and vegetables.

When a dry pint is meant and it's necessary to distinguish it from a liquid pint, usually "dry" will be stated.

It does not measure weight.
    • 1 dry pint = 1/2 dry quart
    • 1 dry pint = 1 1/2 cups (when referring to fruit around the size of blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc)
    • 1 dry pint = 550 ml
    • 1 dry pint = 33.6 cubic inches = 550 cubic cm

      Equivalents

      1 dry pint of blueberries = 12 to 14 oz
1 dry pint of fresh medium-sized strawberries = 12 oz = 3 1/4 cups whole berries = 2 cups, trimmed and sliced or halved
1 dry pint of cherry tomatoes, whole = 25 to 30 cherry tomatoes

Please share this information with your friends. They may love it.
