The Mortar & Pestle

The grinding, crushing, and mashing action of this stone age food processor bursts the cell walls of fresh herbs and whole spices, releasing impressive amounts of fragrant flavor. To use, place foods in the mortar and push down with the pestle, using a twisting downward motion. With hard items like peppercorns and coffee beans, lightly pound first to form cracks. Choose a mortar and pestle made of a strong material such as granite that is not prone to chipping.
