Pestle and mortar
The pestle and mortar has been around for centuries, originally used to crush herbs, plants and certain fruits, in order to create holistic medicines for the masses. Today, pestles and mortars have returned, primarily for use in the culinary arts. These contemporary tools still feature the same set, a wide, deep bowl, and a heavy pestle with which to grind and crush ingredients. Anyone who grows their own herbs and spices would appreciate owning such a set, as it would make processing and storing such fresh ingredients a lot easier.
