HIC's Wooden Mortar and Pestle grinds cloves of garlic, spices, herbs, nuts, grains or seeds into a fine paste or powder. Grind fresh ingredients for aromatic dry rubs, curry pastes, pesto's, nut butters, spreads, freshly ground cinnamon or peppercorns. It's an essential tool for those practicing homeopathy, the art of healing through herbal and natural remedies. Even use to pulverize harder-to-swallow pills. Simply place your item into the bowl-like mortar. Hold the pestle by the handle and, using firm pressure, make a circular stirring-like motion to grind the item into a paste or powder. Harder items, like peppercorns, may need the surface cracked before they can be ground; so, with firm but gentle pressure, tap the item with the pestle and then grind into the desired consistency. Hand wash only. HIC's Pestle and Mortar Set is made from FSC-certified beech wood local to the Czech Republic; the wood is replenishable.
