"How much does 1 quart of strawberries weigh? My recipe calls for 1 quart, but the store sells them in 1-pound containers."

One quart of strawberries can weigh anywhere from about 1 ½ to 2.3 pounds, depending on the size of the berries. The reason it varies is that a quart is a measure of volume. Think of it as the size of your container. If you have lots of little strawberries, you can fit more in the container, and there will be less empty air space. But now you are weighing more strawberries and less air—which is why a quart of little strawberries will weigh more than a quart of big ones.
