Mortar and Pestle for saffron
Undefeated champion of the world in saffron accessories division!
The Pestle and Mortar is an essential duo when it comes to perfectly grounding saffron threads into a fine powder or a rich paste. Saffron Store sells a unique high-quality brass pestle and mortar that is ideal for saffron because it doesn’t merge with the powder, nor does it soak moisture. The brass is hard, smooth, nonporous and cohesive which ensures not only flawless food but also the longevity of the pestle and mortar. The pestle and mortar has been dated back to 35,000 BC and is still commonly used in household and commercial kitchens. The true taste, aroma and colour of saffron can be achieved when it is crushed or grinded.
Thousands of Mediterranean dishes and drinks primarily use a pestle and mortar to extract the unique sensory characteristics of saffron that has been the foundation to some of the world’s most famous recipes. Saffron rice is a traditional dish that uses a pestle and mortar to grind saffron threads, which are added to hot water and then cooked with the rice causing the rice to go a rich yellow colour and become very fragrant. Warm saffron milk is a traditional drink that also requires a pestle and mortar to crush the saffron to ensure the milk becomes tastier, fragrant and a rich yellow colour.
