The best way to release aromatic flavors in fresh and dried herbs and spices is to grind or crush them using a tool like our Green Marble Mortar and Pestle.
With a classic shape, our Green Marble Mortar and Pestle is designed for fine grinding a wide variety of herbs, spices, and other foods. Using a mortar and pestle is a centuries-old method of food preparation, and is still considered the best way to release the full flavors of ingredients like herbs, spices, and seeds. Grinding your recipe ingredients yields fresher taste and more aromatic results.
Made by RSVP, the bowl of this set stands 3″ tall and has a diameter of 3-1/4″. The pestle is 4″ in length.
Marble is the preferred material for mortar and pestles, because of its relatively nonporous surface texture. The interior of the bowl is unfinished so that the necessary friction can develop while the herbs and spices are ground. I also find this mortar and pestle set useful for grinding pills for my pet.
