Additional Information
Grind fresh spices, make homemade salsa, guacamole or queso with this traditional molcajete. Used for centuries by Mexican cooks, a molcajete is an ancient mortar and pestle that uses the rough surface of volcanic stone to grind and release flavorful oils. The more you use it, the more its natural character will develop the flavors in your foods. Mexican artisans carved the Verve Culture molcajete out of volcanic stone, along with the matching tejolote (pestle). Included with your molcajete is a tortillero palm basket to keep your tortillas warm.

  • Curing helps smooth the surface of your molcajete
  • To cure, rinse the molcajete with water (or let soak in water overnight) and clean with a wire brush, or toothbrush, to get rid of surface debris and dust. Then place enough rice to make an even layer across the bottom of the molcajete. Pour in about a tablespoon of water, then use the pestle to work the rice up and around the entire inner surface of the molcajete until the rice has formed a gray paste. Rinse out the paste, and repeat the rice grinding until the resulting paste is no longer gray. You can then repeat with garlic, onion, cumin seeds, rock salt or cilantro to add a seasoned flavor before your first use
