How much is a pinch of salt?
As most people didn’t have spoons small enough, a pinch of salt was traditionally defined as "the amount that can be taken between the thumb and forefinger". There are various opinions as to the precise quantity of a pinch of salt and either 1/16 or 1/8 teaspoon (0.3 or 0.6 ml) seem to be the most common.
If it helps, as a general rule there are two dashes in a tad, two pinches in a dash and two smidgens in a pinch. If not, our bee 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 Bee salt spoon is 8.5cm (3.4”) long and comes packaged in an organza bag with care and usage instructions.
Each Bee salt spoon is handmade using solid polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead) and completely food friendly. Because we use solid metal, the surface of your condiment spoon will never rust or flake, to clean just wash with warm soapy water.
