MARBLE MORTAR/PESTLE 4"
Hic's marble mortar and pestle set is the perfect tool to grind spices, herbs, nuts, and more, into a fine paste or powder. Make aromatic dry rubs, curry pastes, pestos, homeopathic remedies, pulverize harder-to-swallow pills, and so much more. Its larger capacity is perfect for grinding more during food preparation. Simply place your item into the bowl-like mortar. Hold the pestle by the handle and, using a firm pressure, make a circular stirring-like motion to grind your item into a paste or powder. Harder items, like peppercorns, may need the surface cracked before it can be ground. With a firm but gentle pressure, tap the item with the pestle, then grind into the desired consistency. Pestle and mortar are both made from solid, fine-quality marble. Hand wash in warm, soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
