All spoons are not equal…

In writing receipts, it is impossible to give in each, every detail; it must therefore be understood that ‘a spoonful,’ whether table, dessert, tea, or saltspoon, be used, means a spoon of the ordinary size for kitchen use…If these remarks be remembered, no difficulty can arise, as in all cases where detail is necessary, it is given in the receipt.
