Review for Pig Head Molcajete
This is my first mortar and pestle. I actually purchased this because my favorite Mexican Restaurant, Rosa Mexicano in NY, makes their table side guacamole in the same molcajete. I followed the same recipe direction in the video and my guacamole turned out delicious. I've only used it twice. I also cured and seasoned the molcajete prior to use. I followed directions via other internet pages describing how to cure and season it. I ground rice in it 4-5 times until the rice was white, as long as the ground rice doesn't turn a gray-ish color anymore, you should be fine. Then I seasoned it with a few cloves of garlic, cumin, kosher salt, and pepper and left it over night. I only use a warm/hot water and lime to wash the mortar and pestle. It's fun to make guacamole in the molcajete and I think it's tastier too! It's great decor too! It's heavy, which is good because it is sturdy. I would recommend the item. Enjoy!
