Question on recipe measurements

Ookley | Dec 13, 2011 05:29 PM

If I have a recipe that calls for 2 pounds of tomatoes peeled seeded and chopped, should I buy two pounds of tomatoes and peel and seed them, or should I buy more and use two pounds after peeling and seeding them?

Likewise, is the answer to this question different for different ways that the ingredients are listed? For example, is there a difference between "half a pound of french bread, crust removed" and "half a pound of crustless french bread"?
