Crush herbs & spices in old-world style. Our handsome 8-1/2" diameter molcajete is the traditional Mexican version of the mortar, carved from natural volcanic stone for a very aggressive grinding surface. The molcajete (molka-heh-tay) is used with included tejolote (the pestle, pronounced tay-ha-low-tay) for authentic moles, salsas, fresh guacamole or grinding chilies and other hard spices. The molcajete is 5" tall and the tejolote is 4-1/2" long with a 2-1/2" diameter grinding end. Includes a booklet with steps to cure and clean your molcajete, plus recipes.
“Currently, there is an ad on TV for a phone company with the by-line is “when OK is not good enough”. If okay is not good enough then I encourage you to deal with Pleasant Hill Grain.”
