Thank you for all the great info!

I tried a web search, but my usually good Google-foo just wasn't 
working - i got lots of recipes and no equivalents.

I suspect that in the cases of my recipes 1/2 cup too much will be 
fine, although too little would not be good, since one recipe is a 
(not provably period) onion condiment. The recipes this person wants 
are from a privately sponsored feast at a Kingdom camping event and 
while the majority of recipes were period, a few were peri-oid and a 
couple downright modern.

This info will work fine. I tend to buy large onions for feasts and 
medium ones for home. Someday i will conduct my own experiment at 
Urtatim (that's err-tah-TEEM)
the persona formerly known as Anahita
