    Slack handfuls ARE scientific! Every time I use a slack handful, it's the same amount! (ish)

    I'd have gone for about 4oz. Beans absorb about twice their weight in liquid (a bit more usually) and then there is the water you would drain off the tin. Of course being one of those who just about never weighs anything, I more often do 'volume' measure. Find a measuring jug with fl oz, and measure to 6/7oz mark..... (200ml, for those who like metric)
    Flowers come in too many colours to see the world in black-and-white.
