These are the American ones.
1 gallon = 2 pottles
1 pottle = 2 quarts
1 quart = 2 pints
1 pint = 2 cups
1 cup = 2 gills
1 gill = 2 jacks
1 jack = 2 fluid ounces
1 fluid ounce = 2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons

And the legal definition of a gallon is 231 cubic inches.
The legal definition of an inch is 2.54 centimeters, so with the above you have all the info required to convert kitchen measurements to metric.

But it's usually simpler to just treat a quart as a liter. :-)

Turns out there's an official Unicode "page" for runes

This is my SCA name (and origin of the name I use here and several other places)

ᛇᚱᛁᚲᚱ ᛁᚾᚾ ᚲᛖᛜᚱ
Eirikr inn kengr

(that's a byname, btw)

English is Erik the bent (or the kinked) and yes, the double meaning was chosen with malice aforethought. :-)
