Prepare herbs, spices and sauces the way our ancestors did--with handmade stone tools. The Comonfort Group presents this heart-shaped basalt bowl, crafted by hand in a labor-intensive process.
The artisans recommend that the bowl be 'cured' before the first use. To cure the molcajete, place some dried beans, corn or rice in the bowl and grind with the pestle until pulverized. Allow the pulverized grain to sit for 15 minutes. Once this has been done, the molcajete can be hand washed and allowed to dry. This step will ensure that any stone dust remaining from the carving process does not affect the food.
