This gorgeous mortar and pestle handcrafted in Pakistan is the perfect kitchen tool for grinding herbs and spices, crushing garlic or making chunky sauces like guacamole or pesto. Not only will your foods have added texture and flavor but this Himalayan salt mortar and pestle would look stunning on your kitchen counter.
Since Himalayan crystal salt is naturally anti-microbial clean up is as easy as wiping the interior with a damp cloth. Interested? Pick one up over at Williams-Sonoma. We bet mom would like one too.
