Pinches

A pinch is a small unit used in cooking, typically used to measure salt and other spices when seasoning. One pinch is equal to the amount of seasoning that can be taken between your thumb and finger, or 1/2 of a dash. The pinch is a rough measurement, but is commonly considered to be equal to 1/16 of a teaspoon.

Teaspoons

A teaspoon of salt is equal to 8 dashes of salt or 1/3 of a tablespoon.

Teaspoons can be abbreviated as tsp, and are also sometimes abbreviated as t, ts, or tspn. For example, 1 teaspoon can be written as 1 tsp, 1 t, 1 ts, or 1 tspn.
