Upgrade your kitchen with the Batu mortar and pestle! These traditionally shaped lavastone pieces are hand carved in Indonesia, and their naturally coarse and porous nature makes grinding spices and other ingredients for your next meal a breeze. As beautiful as they are functional, the Batu mortar and pestle will add texture and depth to your kitchen.
Please Note: Condition the mortar and pestle by hand washing with clean water (no soap!) and air drying. Then, grind a handful of rice, discard, and repeat to remove any debris from the porous lava stone - once the rice grinds white, you’re ready to discard it and move to the next step. Then, grind four cloves of garlic, and add 1 tsp ea. of cumin, salt, and pepper - grind together and discard. Hand wash again with clean water (no soap!), air dry, and it’s ready to use!
