Mortar and Pestle

I’m trying to curb my love for kitchen gadgets. But something that’s been used for thousands of years can’t be considered a kitchen gadget, right? It’s primitive, historic, and a totally essential tool (at least that’s what I keep telling myself).

Enter the humble mortar and pestle. Except the one that I have is not humble: it’s a giant granite one. It works great, and I love it! I’ve used it for making guacamole and grinding pepper and spices. This summer, I’m hoping to make pesto.

Do you own this essential kitchen tool? What do you use it for?
