How Much Is An Ounce?

When ordering herbs, spices, or seasoning blends by the ounce, it is not uncommon to encounter uncertainty regarding the quantity required. It is important to note that the weight of an herb is directly proportional to its "fluffiness", which may result in one ounce of one herb weighing differently from another herb. For instance, the weight of parsley and cilantro is relatively lighter than that of salt and sugar, which can make a blend heavier. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the relative weight of each herb to ensure that the desired blend is achieved. Most of our non-leafy blends are approximately 2 tablespoons per ounce.
