Molcajete — Grind like an Aztec


"The mortar and pestle carved from volcanic rock is among the world's oldest kitchen tools."

This fierce–looking kitchen implement has made it from the shores of Lake Texcoco to the Williams–Sonoma catalog looking very much like it would perfectly at home in the great Aztec city of Tenochtitlan.

Carved from a single basalt rock in Mexico.

$49 here.

Molcajete is the Spanish word for this tool.
