Giveaway: Sweese Mortar and Pestle

Disclosure: I received the following item at no cost in return for an honest review.

When we cook, we love to use fresh herbs and aromatic spices. We have moved on from using prepacked dried herbs and factory ground spices. Why? Because there is a huge taste difference.

Grinding your own herbs and spices means that you, and not some far away factory, are bringing out all the fresh flavors and oils. This delicious freshness will add so much more flavor to your dishes as it has to ours. Here's just a few of the items that we grind by hand: rosemary, anise, cloves, celery seed, cinnamon, allspice, red pepper...there are so many that we grind ourselves freshly for each meal that we cook.

Over the years, we have tried out quite a few mortar and pestle sets, but none can compare to the latest set that I have received. It's a porcelain mortar and pestle set from Sweese. With the porcelain mortar and a wood pestle, we find that we can more easily do a finer grind. The pestle is made of high quality original wood, healthy to use.

We find that this set not big and heavy. It's the perfect smaller size so we can grind just the amount that we need more simply. It can be used for grinding and crushing herbs, grains, spices, nuts, roots, tea or pills. This is an easy way to make sauces and dressings for dinner, or rice and vegetable paste for your baby. Pour out your ingredients confidently with the convenient pour spout.

Because the mortar is made of pure porcelain, it is stain-free, easy to clean and dishwasher safe. Since the pestle is made from wood, it does need to be hand washed. As with all my wooden kitchen tools and boards, I do, from time to time, use butcher block oil on them to keep them in top condition.

Using a mortar and pestle could not be easier. It's very simple and actually satisfying to use.

  1. Put your ingredients in the mortar and hold the mortar in place with one hand.
  2. Hold the pestle in your other hand with a firm but comfortable grip.
  3. Press the rounded end of the pestle down onto the ingredients and roll it against the mortar while applying firm pressure.
  4. Grind your herbs or spices until you have the grind that you desire.
Grinding your own herbs and spices brings a flavor and aroma to your meals that just can't be beat. A Sweese Mortar and Pestle set will help give your families better tasting meals.
