Question for Mom


When a recipe says, “Add a pinch of salt,” how much is a pinch? -- Robert W.

A pinch is the amount that you can pick up between your thumb and forefinger, which is normally a little less than 1/8 teaspoon—unless you have a very large hand.

If the recipe says, “Add a dash of vanilla” or any other liquid, 3 or 4 drops will do.
