The seed of the mighty oak tree symbolises potential, strength and longevity. It is also a Celtic and Nordic symbol of life, fertility and immortality.
“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 salt spoon is 93 mm (3 3/4”) long and is presented with a card with care and usage instructions inside an organza bag.
Each little acorn salt spoon is handmade from polished lead free pewter and is completely food safe. The pewter is non-tarnishing (that was the lead). We use solid metal, so the surface of your condiment spoon will never flake or rust, To clean, simply wash with warm soapy water.
