Portion ingredients when packaging displays weight or volume.

We save so much time in the kitchen when we use a calculator instead of pulling out the weighing machine, weighing, adjusting, washing up and putting it away.  Use the calculator for items that cannot be apportioned quickly.

For example, a stick of butter will have on its packaging, a weight of 4 ounces. Recipes usually call for 3 or 4 ounces of butter. Use the appropriate portion. For a required weight of 3 oz , use 3/4 of the stick. In Australia, a block of butter is ordinarily 250 grams or 8 oz. So, 3/4 of a block is 6 oz and 1/2 of that again is 3 oz.

A bag of coconut is likely to have a displayed weight of 8 oz or 250 grams. If 4 oz or 125 grams is required, use half the bag.  There's no need to be precious about cooking, afterall this is not a science experiment. Rounded or good estimates are usual and accepted practices in the kitchen.
