How much is a pinch of salt?
As most people do not have spoons small enough, a pinch of salt, sugar, or spice is traditionally defined as "the amount that can be taken between the thumb and forefinger".
There are various opinions as to the actual quantity for a pinch of salt and either 1/16 or 1/8 teaspoon (0.3 or 0.6 ml) seem to be the most common.
As a general rule, there are two dashes in a tad, two pinches in a dash and two smidgens in a pinch, hope that helps! If not, our oak leaf salt spoon holds 1.2 g (0.04 oz) of heaped salt, 0.6 g (0.02 oz) rounded and 0.4 g (0.01 oz) levelled.
The silver coloured Oak leaf salt spoon is 9.3cm (3.7”) long and comes packaged in an organza bag with care and usage instructions.
Our Oak salt spoons are made by hand from solid polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead) and completely food safe. Because we use solid metal, the surface of your condiment spoon will never flake or rust, just wash with warm soapy water to clean.
