Lava stone molcajete ø 20cm
Spices can be crushed in molcajete like no other and most of the time molcajetes are used in making a salsa due to the fact that a special texture and flavor are obtained when made in them. Salsas or Guacamole can be served or presented on the table after being elaborated in the same mortar, giving your table a rustic look. Usually recipes are not stewed or cooked in the molcajete, it does stay hot for a long time, so don't be surprised if you find your food bubbling hot a half hour after serving
Your molcajete may have minor variations to the one shown on the picture and it can be slightly different on size, color, and porosity of stone each piece is handcrafted by an artisan.
To cure a Molcajete all you need is to do is grind garlic with salt and water until it no longer gives off sand or dirt.
