Get the most flavor and aroma out of your spices and herbs with this granite mortar and pestle. Great for using to grind ingredients for a rub, marinade, curry pastes, pesto, nut butters, spreads, etc. A great tool to bringing more intense and delicious flavor to your meals. Simply grind your herbs, spices, nuts, grains or pills by placing them in the mortar and use the pestle to apply pressure as you move it back and forth to grind the herbs into a fine powder like substance. Measures 6 inches diameter on the outside and 4.6 inches diameter on the inside. Holds approximately 2 cups of liquid. Constructed of solid granite.

SEASONING: Any mortar and pestle stone set need to be "seasoned" before the first usage, so that you eliminate the risk of having granite residuals in your food. This process will clean out the stone dust that is inherently left during the manufacturing process.

Wash it in clean water, without detergent and let it air dry. You should never wash it with soap, the soap will imprint into what you are grinding ruining the flavor. You should always begin using it when it’s dry, a wet mortar might gum up your dry ingredients.

Roughly grind a small handful of white rice. Discard and repeat until the rice grinds white. It will take several grinds. If your mortar has a tendency to slip on the counter while you are learning, put a non-skid shelf liner under it.

Next add 4 cloves of garlic, mash and muddle. Add 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper to the garlic. Grind it all together, enjoy the smells, and discard.
Wash it again in clean water, without soap, and air dry.
