A black granite pestle and mortar for grinding spices.
A pestle and mortar is the perfect piece of kit for grinding small amounts of spices. Although grinding by hand may be slower, the spices don't heat as they might in an electric grinder and you can more easily control how coarse the resulting blend is, allowing for more precise cooking.
Our pestle and mortar is 14cm in diameter x 7.5cm high with a rough interior that makes spice grinding a breeze. The exterior has a sleek black finish that should last a lifetime and make it look stunning in your kitchen. We've also included a sachet of whole coriander and cumin seeds and an information card containing tips for toasting and grinding spices, as well as a couple of recipe ideas.
Simply toast whole seeds for 2 - 3 minutes until fragrant, leave them to cool slightly and then grind away. Once done, use them straight away or store them for later, although don't wait too long - ground spices lose their flavour quicker than whole spices! As well as seeds, our kit is also perfect for grinding garlic, ginger or chillies into a paste.
Ingredients: Coriander Seeds, Cumin Seeds.
