Mortar and pestles are classic and handy tools to have in the kitchen. Although Savory Spice Shop grinds product in-house, creating incredibly fresh results, there is nothing that can beat the freshness of grinding your own spices as needed when cooking.
Use your mortar and pestle to crush or grind toasted seeds and other spices. Larger mortar and pestles can also be used to make guacamole or pesto. Because these are made of natural marble, your mortar and pestle may have slight variances in color and pattern from the one in the photo here.
"We gave a spice gift box as a Christmas present and they were delighted (as we were) to open and see the way the spices were packed....with anise, cinnamon, etc. It made the gift even more special and enjoyable. What a nice touch!!"
