If you visualize an 8oz. package of sliced mushrooms that you see in the supermarket, it is about at the 1-1 1/2C that has been mentioned. That said, mushrooms cook down so much, more could not hurt!!

Yes Poutine, but you are mixing volume and weight.

16 fluid oz of water (volume) weighs about a pound, lb, weight (a pint is a pound the world around).

But mushrooms ain't water. Their density is less than water and there is a lot of air between mushrooms. So a pint of mushrooms will weight significantly less than a lb.

Yes it is confusing. But I don't think we are going to change any time soon.
