    Re: Singular / Plural

    If you look at any cookery book, you'll see that amounts/quantities are placed before the ingredients — like this:

    6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (6 medium)
    3/4 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
