Do you mean 1 bushel of apples results in 85 1/2 cups servings of applesauce, that type of reference?

Nah I meant stuff like 1 carrot yields 80% after peeling, trimming etc etc, or that oatmeal yields 690% after cooking :)

It's all good I went by the library today to check out the Book of Yields. Good stuff, aimed towards the commercial chef or F&B manager.
