RSVP Authentic Molcajete is the traditional Mexican version of the mortar, with a rounded shape set on three short legs and carved of natural volcanic stone. The molcajete is used with the included tejolote, or pestle, which is carved from the same material. Together they are a must-have tool for rustic salsas, guacamole, and mole.
Usage of the molcajete goes back thousands of years and likely evolved from the metate, a primitive grinding slab. A ceramic version was used by pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican cultures. In Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, molcajete and tejolote literally translate as “sauce bowl” and “stone doll.”
