0 Mortar and Pestle

About two weeks ago my roommates and I went to Bed Bath and Beyond in order to get a new clock. We switched cable companies, and our new cable cox sadly has no clock.

While at Bed Bath and Beyond, I browsed some of the kitchen items. I've been meaning to get a mortar and pestle for a while, and found a relatively cheap ceramic mortar and pestle.

From what I've read, mortar and pestles are wonderful for crushing vegetables and spices, so I tried making some pesto with it.

In order to make the pesto, I first crushed some fresh basil, garlic, and pine nuts. I then blended some cheese and olive oil with it, and made some fresh pesto!

If you have any fun ideas for recipes involving a mortar and pestle, let me know!
