Crush Acacia Wood and Cast Iron Mortar and Pestle
Fresh herbs and spices are much more flavorful and colorful in recipes than store bought dry ingredients, but they need to be processed. For convenience, there is a temptation to use a noisy and hard-to-clean food processor to do this. However, science and professional chefs favor the use of a mortar and pestle; it crushes ingredients while food processor blades cut. The benefit of grinding vs. cutting ingredients, is the smashing action releases the full flavor and aromas of the ingredients. That is something a Vitamix or expensive blender will not be able to accomplish.
The Crush Acacia Wood and Cast Iron Mortar and Pestle is made of a durable, heavy-duty cast iron bowl and pestle (tip) that makes grinding ingredients easy and effective; perfect for powdering spices, grains, herbs, garlic and crushing nuts. An attractive and sustainable Acacia wood vessel supports the cast iron mortar bowl and the handle of the pestle. A modern, stylish and essential tool for maximizing the flavor and aromas of herbs/spices resulting in enhanced culinary experiences.

Been cooking a lot from home during quarantine. I wanted to try using spice pods and grinding them to a powder. This Mortaris perfect for this use. It's heavy duty cast iron mortar and it's lovely to look at.
