Suggested steaming container is a "#2 can." Can someone please advise
how many ounces that size is?

Older recipes often refer to can sizes by number. Here's a chart that was
in one of my older cookbooks:

No. 1 picnic: 1 1/4 cups 10 1/2 ounces
No. 300: 1 3/4 cups 15 1/2ounces
No. 1 tall or 303: 2 cups 15 ounces
No. 2: 2 1/2 cups 20 ounces
No. 2 1/2: 3 1/2 cups 29 ounces
No. 3: 5 3/4 cups 46 ounces
No. 10: 3 quarts 6 lb. 9 ounces

Hope this is helpful!

Karen

To clarify my previous post a bit, the first measurement is volume; the
second is average net weight.

No. 1 picnic: 1 1/4 cups (10 1/2 ounces)
No. 300: 1 3/4 cups (15 1/2ounces)
No. 1 tall or 303: 2 cups (15 ounces)
No. 2: 2 1/2 cups (20 ounces)
No. 2 1/2: 3 1/2 cups (29 ounces)
No. 3: 5 3/4 cups (46 ounces)
No. 10: 3 quarts (6 lb. 9 ounces)
