Onoono / Kaku (各) in Japanese Recipes?

I was trying to translate this word, 各, but I'm still puzzled after finding the meaning. I read that it means, "each, every, either", but I'm not sure how that works in a recipe. In one recipe, it was used twice with liquids, "酒各小さじ1" and "水各大さじ1/2".

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks! :)

When it's used like that in recipes, it means 'each'. So it might say 酒、水各大さじ1 which would mean 'sake and water, 1 tablespoon each'.
