      What you get sometimes with recipe scaling programs is funny.
      I've seen 1/12th cup
      1/16 tablespoon
      .01 gallon

    2. That's peeling the onion mighty thin, so to speak. Without knowing what you're measuring and what you're using it in, I'd suggest you just use a teaspoon of the stuff.

      1. What are you making? Is it important to be that exact? It is "almost" a teaspoon.
