Tejolote pronounced [the-hoh-LOH-the] also known as temolote o telmalchin, is the matching hand-held grinding tool also made of the same volcanic rock or basalt material than the Molcajete. Tejolote or Texolotl derives from the Nahuatl Tetl (Stone) y Xocotl (Grind or pulverize); It's a heavy, oval shaped rock used to grind and pulverize peppers, onions, tomatoes and spices into thick purees and salsas in a molcajete. The Ancient Aztecs made their molcajetes out of ceramic instead of stone, and used to grind grains, herbs, and other food substances as well as medicines.

Extra tejolote
It a tejolote. It's nice and heavy. I didn't need this, but I purchased it anyway. I didn't want to risk ever being without one. I know how much use my molcajete is going to get and felt a back up plan was in order. Once I get the seasoning done, my family is going to want salsa all the time. I learned a long time ago to always be prepared. :)
ProsDifferent rock so a totally different feel. Nice to have a variety and see which one I like the best.

Great tejolote replacement
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!
