I don't have this measuring spoon, all I have are 1/8, 1/4, 1 tsp....How would I measure out 3/16 of a tsp?

Dissolve a 1/4 tsp in 40 mls of water and keep 30 mls and you'll have 3/16 of a tsp in solution.

How much is 3/16 of a tsp? It depends what's in it. Gold dust, a lot, sand, not so much :)

Go to a household supply store, Bed Bath and Beyond or Linens and Things, and, for a few dollars, you can purchase a micro measuring spoon set. The label may say pinch, dash, etc. I don't recalll the conversion but it's available somewhere.

Good luck.

Some of those spoons were fractional tablespoons and not fractional teaspoons. And some of them were 1/16th, 1/32th and 1/64th.

Like I said. Get a digital gram scale. Makes life very easy.
