I'm a stranger to the
measurement tin and I'm supposed to use
a recipe with a 1/2 tin of milk.

Could anyone tell me what this is in...umm...
any more understandable form (liquid ounce, liters..anything), thank you. (how much a tin contains..)

*waits for somebody to tell me to use google...*
(I tried..really did..)

Well condensed milk comes in tins. Use half of one :o) I don't think any other type of milk comes in Tins.

Well, the measurement of a tin of milk, isn't used here.

Infact we only have milk in cartons (sp?) ;-).
I used the kind that here comes in a red one :-P

Anyway, I already used common logic as I was making fudge and got it right. (if 2 dl of sugar, 2dl or so of milk/cream too)

I assumed a tin is like 14 ounce fluid?
1 US fluid ounce = 0.0295735297 liter
And one tin would be over 4dl and half of that would be around 2dl, which would equal the amount of sugar in the recipe which is the common policy when fudging up...

*awaits somebody to tell me a tin is not 14 ounces..*

Not that I'd know what a tin is ...is it a can? Oh boy, I seem dumber and more ignorant by the moment. I should escape the topic...

"*awaits somebody to tell me a tin is not 14 ounces..*"

First of all, I'm operating under the assumption that this IS condensed milk we are talking about:

I would assume that a tin is a can, like Catgoddess stated, though I've not heard it referred to that way before. A can of condensed milk usually comes smaller than 14 ounces, probably around 8 ounces, or a half-pint.

condenced milk is different than regular milk too- its sweeter... and not the same...
look for some in a grocery store- they should have it. then... use half of it...
:)

Condensed milk is milk reduced by evaporation, with sugar added. 1 can (14oz) = 1 quart whole milk plus 7oz of sugar.

Thank you Mr. Google (why didn't I look for the milk's name..before)
Looks like I was right.:-P
I am so great....*silence*
Now I can sleep in peace.
Amen.

For a moment then I was desperate to discover how this fudge turns out.


Either get me a drink or shoot me now.

we'd call it a tin of condensed milk. Like how you'd get cat food in a tin...but then, we have cans of soup...arrgghh.
