Hand-carved from a single piece of volcanic rock, our pig-shaped molcajete (mortar) stays true to Mexican culinary tradition. The preferred tool for making salsas and guacamole, it has a rough interior surface that creates unique tastes and textures. Use the tejolete (pestle) to prep, then bring the molcajete to the table to serve.
