I have noticed some curious things about how goods are measured in UK:
This discussion (on different terms for weights and measures) has been very informative. I just found this site:
http://www.ex.ac.uk/cimt/dictunit/dictunit.htm#US which has some wonderful conversion charts.
Does it include the essential measurements for a handful, a pinch, and a smidgen? ;-)
In my kitchen, I have a cookbook that has recipes with such measurements as a teacupful and a dessertspoonful. It's Indian recipes printed in England. Wonderful cookbook, too.
