Grupon Comonfort presents this traditional footed molcajete or stone mortar, crafted by hand from volcanic basalt. The three-footed design is like those traditionally used for ceremonial purposes as well as for food preparation. The pestle, called a tejolote, is used to grind or crush the foodstuffs in the molcajete. The molcajete can also be used as a unique serving dish for salsa or guacamole.
The artisans recommend that the molcajete 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.
