  1. So if my recipe calls for 16 pounds fresh mushrooms, I first divide the pounds by 16, yielding 1, then divide by 9, yielding 1/9th of an ounce (approx 1 dried mushroom)?

    Dear Hmmmm…

    You are quite right to point out that I’ve got the wrong operation to convert from pounds to ounces…it should be multiply, not divide. I’ve fixed the post so it displays the correct instructions.

    Thanks for the head’s up!
