I'm not sure of the exact quantity, although I'd say much less than 24 ounces. I don't think this refers to an exact measure. To paraphrase others, sometimes a dyshe is only a dyshe.
<< My gut reaction says that it is a much smaller amount than 24 ounces, say 1or 2 for a half and 2 or 4 for a dyshfull. Just a guess on my part.

<<< Does anyone know how much a "dyshe" would have been around 1550? The
Hampton Court cooks found "an obscure dairy measure" from the north of
England (1800) that indicated it was 24 ounces. Anyone else have a
better definition? >>>
