How to quantify a measurement?

I bought some pickle crisp to add to my dill pickle recipe, the jar calls for 1/8 teaspoon per pint jar, so how much is 1/8 teaspoon?

Most measuring spoon sets have a 1/8 tsp spoon.

If you don't have an 1/8 teaspoon measuring spoon you can eyeball half of a 1/4 teaspoon measure. You'll probably be fine.

I don't know where you buy yours, but I've never seen a typical set with a 1/8 spoon. Every set I've ever owned, and every set my mother ever owned stopped at 1/4.

They used to be more common. Most of the sets I've seen in recent years don't have 1/8 tsp measures, either.

I guess I've been lucky. I not only have 1/8 tsp but also one that says 'Pinch'.

You had to make me look. My ancient set only goes down to 1/4 tsp.

I shopped for my measuring spoon set (Cuisipro Stainless Steel Measuring Spoon Set - $17.99) by comparing all the features of the others, just as I do with all of my purchases. OXO Good Grips 7-Piece Plastic Measuring Spoons is only $4.99.

I prefer stainless steel measuring spoons. They hold up better in the garbage disposal.

An set of spoons I buy must include a 1/2 Tablespoon measure.
