Mortar & Pestle

The mortar and pestle are a set of tools that have been around for centuries, with evidence of this set being used all the way back in 35,000 BC. The mortar and pestle were used in Egypt as both medical and culinary tools. The Greeks used a mortar and pestle that was made from stone and more bowl-like than cup-like, which is the more common look of today’s mortar. Used today for many purpose, some people prefer to use a hand powered mortar and pestle instead of an automatic grinder because they believe this helps release the herbs and spices aromatics better. There is also the belief that anything ground down with a mortar and pestle will taste better. Some people use it simply to continue the tradition from times past. Whatever your reason, get your hands on one of the world’s oldest tools and start grinding.
