What a pound of grapes looks like will surprise you. So often, we get into the habit of buying fruits and vegetables that have been pre-measured and pre-packaged for us — and while the convenience can't be beat when we're in a rush, it does disconnect us from knowing what a pound should look like.

Our eyes are one of our greatest, most useful tools in the kitchen. They can help us size up everything from the weight of vegetables to the doneness of meat. Educate Your Eye is a series on The Kitchn that teaches you what you need to know to use your eyes for smarter cooking both inside and outside the kitchen.
