Can I use a regular teaspoon to measure?
Consequently, how do you measure a teaspoon?
How to Measure Without Measuring Cups
- 1/8 teaspoon is about one good pinch between your thumb and both your forefinger and middle finger.
- 1/4 teaspoon is about two good pinches between your thumb and both your forefinger and middle finger.
- A teaspoon is about the size of the tip of your finger (joint to tip).
Likewise, is a teaspoon the same as a regular spoon? She laughed derisively and said a tablespoon is just a regular spoon – the kind you eat cereal with. A teaspoon is the smallest, a tablespoon is the largest, and then a DESSERT spoon falls in between. When I called the regular cereal-eating-sized spoon a 'dessert spoon', I was once again met with scornful laughter.
Beside above, what can I use if I don't have a teaspoon?
The Easiest Solution: Fill Half a Kitchen Spoon If you don't have a teaspoon, the single easiest way to approximate one is to use a regular spoon – the kind you'd eat cereal with – and fill it about halfway.
How do you measure a teaspoon when you don't have a teaspoon?
Next time you have measuring spoons handy, practice putting a level teaspoon of salt into the palm of your hand. Then do the same with a teaspoon of water. You'll soon get a feel for how much a teaspoon is. Then try it with a level tablespoon of salt, and then a tablespoon of water.
