Go ahead, laugh, but I do not know.

 

Spring cleaning, found a set of three measuring spoons. Obviously, these were relics from the late Goodwife Lee. But I had never seen ones like these. Obviously very carefully custom hand made, well used. All marked.

 

Is there such a thing as an official volume measurement for a 'smidgen', a 'dash', and a 'pinch'?

 

I do not know!

don't know if there are "official" measurements for these , but a friend gave me a set of these once. I didn't use them and eventually got rid of them. Cute little gift ,tho. (for a Sunday School Christmas party)

Thank you! Now to figure how to label, without damaging them.

 

I have seen these before. The thrift shoppe a little down the road has a set. So cute!

 

But to answer your question, hands down I recommend the Brother labelers with the laminated tape. The firefighters use them for their heat resistance (dishwasher), & I can attest that a label can last 3 years with very often use going through the dishwasher. Once you get the corner pulled up, they come right off.
