Is this a Mistake?

Is this a Mistake?

I am reading a recipe in this morning's Stuff "Life & Style" column and it's for Yottam Ottolenghi's Plum & Blackberry Friand Bake from his book "Ottolenghi Simple". It calls for 8 teaspoons of salt (then goes on to stipulate salt-free butter!) Is it a mis-print? Does anyone have the book who can check that, please? I like the sound of the recipe but not with 8 teaspoons of salt.

Surely not! I have just read the recipe, Lorna, and it's hard to understand how such a glaring error would have occurred. Hope someone has the book!

Just checked my book and it is an 1/8th tsp, so definately a missprint !

Thank you, Karen. I will revisit the page and see if there's any way I can contact them to get the error put right. Then I'll copy the recipe but correct the incorrect quantity!.

There's been a note added in the comments on that article - it should be 1/8 of a teasp

Yes, mariee, that was me that put the note there after I got Karen's reply to my query. I also contacted Stuff through their Facebook page and got a reply that they would pass my message on, but I see this morning it's still the same. Seeing as their articles generally stay online for round about a week, I would have thought someone would be kind and correct it, but alas! I think I'm crying into the wind.
