Smidgen Definition and Usage

A smidgen is a very small unit used in cooking, most often used to measure salt and seasonings. One smidgen is equal to 1/2 of a pinch, which is the amount of seasoning that you can "pinch" between your thumb and finger. Although the smidgen is considered a rough measurement, it is generally accepted to be equal to 1/32 of a teaspoon.
