What is the measurements cooking term "tc" mean? Such as: 1/4 tc sugar
Are you sure it is TC? And Not ts or just C? As far as I know there is no abbreviation TC in cooking. Only tsp, tbsp, c, oz and a few more that are nowhere close to TC. It maybe could be tea cup but I've never know anyone to use a tea cup to measure solids. It is probably equivalent to 1/4 cup. EDIT I finished my research and TC might refer to the sugar content of a specific food. Specifically, fruit. Or a measurement TC/TS which is a ratio for the amount of cane in a ton of sugar. But that would be a chemical measurement and wouldn't make sense in a recipe. Im thinking it is probably a typo. I could be wrong but I bake a ton and have never seen that abbreviation.
You must be mistaken! I've been cooking for 43 yrs and I've never seen that one!
I agree with the above answers, and would add that if you're looking at a very old recipe, it very well could be tea cup. I've seen some cook books published in the days before standardized measures that call for a certain number of handfuls of flour or whatever.
The measurement cooking term tc may mean tea cup. For example, ? tc sugar may mean that you will use ? of the sugar poured in a tea cup. It is not a very common unit of measurement used in cooking.
Please check. It could be a Tupo error ! tbsp or ts are commonly used for Tablespoon !!
