      Lola, thank you for writing! On the Can sizes and equivalent chart, the weight column reflects the weight of the contents of the can.

    Thank you for the sizes. I know that they (canneries) have lowered the amount in the cans. ie 3# coffee, laughable. Canned milk etc. It plays Whaley with some of my recipes.

    Thank you.

    I would inform people that the dates on cans are not expiring dates . Can veg. ,fruit and others have no expiring date . There was a story of a brother and sister who were cleaning out their parents house after they passed away and found canned peaches that was canned in the 1940’s and decided to open it up and try them . They said it was great . By law the companies have to put those dates on the cans but the dates mean nothing ! Canned food , The greatest invention ever ! Great enough to feed canned spam to our soldiers fighting in WW2 ! No wonder why i love spam lol
