Questions & Answers
Is this a 100% lava rock molcajete? Like made in Mexico authentic? Or is it a nice knock off (Chinese or the like).I'm really looking for a true lava rock molcajete not a granite or mixture of compounds one.I apologize for being so blunt but I want to buy the real McCoy!Thank you
I got this but it didn't come with any instructions. Can you advise me re care and washing? It is dirty with a sandy grit even though it says pre-seasoned?
1. Wash and scrub the interior of the molcajete and the tejolote with water and a stiff brush. Let both objects air dry.
2. Put a handful of uncooked rice in the molcajete. Use the tejolote (the pestle) and grind the rice into the surface of the molcajete. Discard the pulverized rice. Repeat the process until the pulverized rice is white, rather than gray or ash colored.
3. (If your molcajete is "pre-seasoned" you can skip this step) Add 4 cloves of garlic (peeled), 1 teaspoon of cumin (comino) and 1 teaspoon salt, kosher is good, and a teaspoon of pepper. Grind the mixture evenly around the interior of the molcajete. Remove and discard the mixture. Rinse the molcajete and tejolote with clear water and allow to dry before storing. Note that these ingredients and quantities can be adjusted to your liking and for the size of your molcajete.
Maintenance: Simply wash the molcajete and tejolote in warm water after each use. Don't use detergents because the soap and any perfumes may be absorbed into the stone and taint your food. rinse and place in a 350 degree oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. Use oven mitts to remove the molcajete from the oven and sit on a surface than can be exposed to high heat. Allow to cool before use.
