I got taught 10 gram too. I remember the dietitian assessing me before my pump saying 'someone taught you well' when I'd said there was about 10gs in a egg sized boiled potato. The booklet we had (was a blue thing) was a bit iffy really on carb counts. I so wanted to round things. To be fair really tight control wasn't the aim then imo And I was eating to feed insulin.

BUTTTTT Liam - they never specifies whether it was an ostrich egg or a quail's offering, did they!  (However it apparently did weigh 60g, raw - and I always weigh every spud raw, doesn't everybody? LOL) (not that my kitchen scales even acknowledged grams, in 1972!)

In fact Jenny it did say hen's egg in my book. How much it weighted I'm not sure of. To be fair I was a kid so I got taught it mostly by my mother, it was her that did the cooking and counting for me. I only had to know to start with for school launches.
