Milk/Cream Conversions

I was doing a recipe conversion the other day and stumbled across this nifty little chart.  You can use it to combine skim milk with different fat content creams to create different fat content milks.  Very useful if you need a small quantity of whole milk and don't feel like buying a whole quart.

Add the following to 1 cup of skim milk to approximate 1 cup of...

1.5t heavy cream= 1% milk
1T heavy cream= 2% milk
2T heavy cream= whole milk
5T 1t heavy cream= half-&-half
9T heavy cream= light cream
1T light cream= 1% milk
1T 2t light cream= 2% milk
3T light cream= whole milk
5 oz light cream= half-&-half
2T half & half= 1% milk
3T half & half= 2% milk
4T half & half= whole milk

Note: I didn't come up with this, but I've seen it republished many times all over the internet.  Credit where credit is due, I just don't know who to give it to!
