Kris' figures don't look right.
There are 48 teaspoons (US) to one cup (US) water.
So, if Christina notes there to be 5 teaspoons of Ferric Ammonium
Citrate (FAC) to 100 mls or 3.3 ozs. (US)
. . . . . then, there are 8 ozs of water in one cup therefore 3.3 goes
into 8, 2.42 times.
. . . . . then 2.42 times 5 teaspoons is 12.12 teaspoons per cup of
water NOT 24

. . . . . or, looking at it another way, there are 236.588 mls in a
cup. Christine uses 100 mls for her recipe.
the 236.588 divided by 100 gives you, 2.36588 and that times the 5
teaspoons makes 11.83.

Well, then, 12 teaspoons per cup of water, or 1/4 cup of FAC to a cup
of water is correct.

Part B is right.
