One of the best instruments in your cheesemaking kit. These mini spoons are ideal for measuring out the correct amount of starter cultures and ripening cultures. A bottle or sachet of starter culture will make hundreds of litres of milk and the mini spoons help measure micro amounts of that culture each time you make cheese. That accuracy will help you make a better cheese. Using a standard teaspoon measurement is not as accurate as using mini spoons.
These spoons can also be used in the kitchen for spices or other additives where small amounts are required.
To sanitise the mini spoons, hold in a cup of boiled water for one to two minutes, remove and allow a few minutes to air dry.
Mini spoon/teaspoon comparison is:
Tad = 1/4 teaspoon
Dash = 1/8 teaspoon
Smidgen = 1/32 teaspoon
Pinch = 1/16 teaspoon
Drop = 1/64 teaspoon
