Great tejolote replacement
December 17, 2014
The size of the piedra is pretty large for smaller hands but just right for gripping with your whole hand using different leverage. I replaced a smaller rock that was hard on the fingers but this one allows you to grip with the whole palm of your hand. The weight is also perfect for grinding the spices thoroughly and more quickly. I found that I didn't have to pound the molcajete as hard to get the same results. I recommend it if you're having to do a lot of comino and ajo for tamales or for larger portions of arroz!
