A Beautiful Mortar And Pestle From Frieling
A mortar & pestle is just one of those things I have always wanted, but I never quite got around to adding to my collection. It’s one of those kitchen necessities that is easy to forget about when you’re out shopping, but when you see one or need one for crushing herbs; you can’t believe you haven’t bought one yet! Well, I finally got one from Frieling! I am in love with it! When it first came in I thought “Dang! This thing is heavy!” Next my thoughts immediately went to “Oh my goodness! This is something I can pass on to my grandchildren!” I collect cast iron cookware for this same reason although all 3 of my kids tell me they’re never going to have kids LOL This mortar and pestle is my pride and joy now. It has become the centerpiece of my stove. I find myself just staring at it LOL Of course I used it to crush some mint too, but mostly just staring.
