  1. 6 tsp is a lot of salt!? Am I reading it wrong? I did 3 tsp and it still is WAY to salty (i love salty even)

        1. You are reading the chart wrong. You are reading .125 cup = 6 teaspoons which is not the same as .125 of a teaspoon which is 1/8 of a teaspoon.

        2. 0.125 cups is equivalent to 6 tsp. but with regard to salt the recipes just calls for 0.125 teaspoons of it total. I hope that helps clarify. 🙂
