RE: Big Batch Habanero Gold...Can it get bigger? (Follow-Up #16)

Carol, Annie and anyone else working with weights...

I just made and processed two Big Batches of HG. I kept them separate from the beginning. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to evenly distribute the bits if I started in one big pot and tried to divide them on Day 2.

I did weigh everything several times and here is what I came up with for one Big Batch recipe:
170 g minced dried apricots (1/8" dice)
200 g total of minced red sweet pepper and minced red onion (1/8" dice), approximately half-and-half.
30 g Habanero peppers
Note: For extra-hot, increase Habaneros to 60 g and reduce red sweet pepper/red onion combination to 150 g total.
360 g white vinegar
1.2 kg (1200g) sugar
1 3-oz. pouch liquid pectin

When I look at the ingredients as a formula, the percentages using weights are a little off from the percentages using the cup measurements. Shouldn't they be the same? I what I have okay? How should I evaluate whether my weights are okay? Now that I've got the calculations set up, should I "tinker" around with the grams to force the percentages to be the same as those using cups?

Thanks!!
