Many cultures around the world associate butterflies with the well-being of our souls. They represent life, endurance, change and hope.
How much is a pinch of salt?
In the past most people didn’t have a spoon small enough, so a pinch of salt was originally defined as "the amount that can be taken between the thumb and forefinger". There are many differing opinions as to the exact quantity of a pinch of salt but 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 8.7 cm (3.5”) long and comes packaged with care and usage instructions inside an organza pouch. However, if you select gift wrapping, the spoon will come in a gift wrapped black presentation box.
Each butterfly 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 butterfly 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 workshops in Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK
