How Many Ounces In A Quart?
While some styles of cooking call for “a pinch of this” and a “dash of that,” many rely on precise recipes for a successful outcome, especially baking. Your grandma may be able to rely on her memory to create her famous spaghetti sauce and mouthwatering meatloaf, but most of us need some direction when it comes to making dinner. Perhaps one day we’ll be a good as granny! *Pinch and dash are actually fractional teaspoon amounts. You can read more about them in my Tablespoons to Cups conversion guide!

- There are 32 ounces in one quart using the Imperial System of measurement. In the U.S., the imperial system is currently used for measurements. It was originally called the “British Imperial System,” but when the U.S. was established, we continued using the Imperial System whereas many other countries around the world moved along to the Metric System.
- Fluid ounces (for liquids) are not the same as weight by the ounce. An ounce (or a fluid ounce) is the amount of water weighing one ounce. You may notice that many recipes call for cups. There are 4 cups in one quart, 8 oz per cup. There are 4 quarts in one gallon (literally a 'quarter' of a gallon apiece, which is where the name comes from). And there are 2 pints in one quart, 16 fluid ounces in one pint.
Remember to use measuring gadgets designed for liquids, not for dry ingredients.
