    I have to thank you for such an informative list. I could never work out what "tomato sauce" was in American recipes as our tomato sauce is their ketchup. Isn't it funny how different cultures are?
    Did anyone else know that cool whip (used in American cheesecakes and other creamy desserts) is actually whipped and vanilla flavoured vegetable fat which is then frozen - yuk! Give me whipped cream any day.


    This is our tomato sauce:

    Ingredients: Tomato Puree , Water , Tomato Paste , Water , Salt - Less than 2% , Citric Acid - Less than 2% , Spice - Less than 2% , Tomato Fiber - Less than 2% , Natural Flavor - Less than 2%

    Some people forget that not everybody understands what they mean when they say tomato sauce and actually mean pasta sauce:

    hi, interesting list.

    As an American I would make one quibble--you have offal equalling variety meats. If I were sent out to get variety meats, I would come home with a package containing sliced bologna, ham, and turkey. In other words, mixed sandwich meats.

    Americans rarely knowingly eat organ meats, (they sneak it into bologna and franks) but when we do it comes as liver or hearts or whatever. OK, maybe chopped chicken liver. And there are some who go for beef liver. But I'm surprised it come up often enough in American recipes to cause confusion.

    I'd hate to think a business we've always promoted here on the forum would do that icon_confused.gif

    Thanks for letting us know.

    Welcome to the forum-we REALLY are a friendly bunch!

    The subject of where to buy ingredients comes up quite often, and USA foods is one of our first suggestions.

    Here is the sugar information I have collected over the years:

    4 cups = 1 lb = 450g

    Substitution: 1 cup sugar + 1 tbsp cornstarch = 1 cup powdered sugar

    Powdered sugar is granulated sugar that has been crushed into a fine powder with about 3% cornstarch added to prevent clumping.
    Powdered sugar labeled XXXX is slightly finer than that labeled XXX but they can be used interchangeably.
    Because it dissolves so quickly it is often used for icings and frostings or dusted over desserts.

    Sanding sugar has larger granules that sparkle when sprinkled on baked goods and candies.

    Superfine (castor or caster) sugar is granulated white sugar that has superfine granules, and is good for making meringues as it dissolves rapidly.
    Make your own superfine sugar (especially handy for decorating cookies):
    1. Pour the measured amount of granulated sugar into a blender, clean spice/coffee grinder or a food processor.
    2. Blend until superfine.
