Mom’s Marble mortar and pestle collection

Marble mortar

These Marble mortar and pestles have been accumulated across 2 generations and 2 families – one from my paternal grandmother, one from my maternal grandmother and one my mother acquired. We use them to grind small quantities of spices and they are especially useful for grinding saffron to release all its colour and flavour.
