This clever kitchen tool has two bowls for grinding herbs and spices. The larger main bowl is 10cm diameter with an inner glazed area of approximately 2cm at the top and the remainder of the bowl is unglazed. Turn it over and there is a small unglazed bowl which measures 5cm in diameter and is perfect for grinding smaller quantities of spice.
I always roast my spices in a pan, you know they are ready when they start jumping around, this method brings out the best flavour and aroma. Ready ground spices go stale very quickly and it is always best to roast and grind your own. I gave this pestle and mortar a few difficult tasks, such as grinding cardamom seeds and it was quick and easy, I think my old pestle and mortar is now destined to stay in the cupboard.....For dust free storage you can turn the pestle onto its widest bowl and place the pestle upright in the small mortar base and it is dishwasher safe too.
Can be purchased from Amazon for £9.95.
