“For every mighty oak, there was a nut that stood its ground.” – Anon
How much is a pinch of salt?
A pinch of salt is traditionally defined as "the amount that you can hold between the forefinger and thumb".
There are differing opinions as to the actual quantity of a pinch of salt, and either 1/16 or 1/8 teaspoon (0.3 or 0.6 ml) are the most commonplace.
If it helps, here’s a general rule, there are two dashes in a tad, two pinches in a dash and two smidgens in a pinch. If that doesn’t help, our little acorn spoon will hold 1.2 g (0.04 oz) of heaped, 0.6 g (0.02 oz) rounded and 0.4 g (0.01 oz) levelled salt.
The silver coloured acorn spice spoon is 93 mm (3 3/4”) long and is presented with a card with care and usage instructions inside an organza bag. However, if you select gift wrapping, the spoon will come in a gift wrapped black presentation box.
Each acorn salt spoon is hand crafted from polished, solid lead-free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead in old pewter) and completely nickel-free and food safe.
Because our designs are all created in solid metal, the surface of your acorn condiment spoon will never flake like a silver plated spoon. To clean, simply wash with warm soapy water.
All our designs are made exclusively by us in our own workshops in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
