Fill the seven quart. Empty into the five quart, leaving two. Mark the 7 quart jar at that 2 quart level. dump the five quart contents. Pour the 2 quarts into the five, marking its level. Fill the seven quart to the 2 quart level where marked. Fill the five quart to the two quart level, and pour it into the seven, making four quarts. Fill the five quart again to the two quart level, then pour it into the seven, making a total of six quarts.
