    Excellent question! The answer is, more than 7 pinches, but less than 7 tads....give or take : )

    No, really, I wanted to know this as well and while there clearly is some controversy, this is what I followed:

    Tad — 1/8th teaspoon
    Dash — 1/16th teaspoon (or less than 1/8th teaspoon)
    Pinch — 1/16th teaspoon (or 1/24th teaspoon)
    Smidgen (smidge, for short) — 1/32nd teaspoon (or 1/48th teaspoon)
    Drop — 1/60th teaspoon (or 1/80th teaspoon or 1/120th teaspoon)
    Hint — a trace


    So then it equals out to just under half a teaspoon in all. Sorry I am taking a cooking class and loved the recipe and wanted to use it in class. To show the instructer i needed to know about how much in concrete measures what it would be.

    Not a problem. I think you have a pretty wide range with nutmeg. Over a teaspoon may be too much, but anything up to that should be fine. I was just trying to keep within the pi parameters : )

    Glad you like it, hope it goes well in class!
