      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.
