A pestle (Surikogi) and mortar (Suribachi) is an essential piece of kit for every student and master of Japanese cuisine. The grooved interior of the mortar provides the ideal grinding surface for sesame seeds, peppercorns, nuts and spices. The attractive nature of the earthenware mortar means pastes and sauces can be created in the bowl and taken directly to table. The magnolia wood pestle is durable and smooth with a design that makes it very comfortable to use.
A silicon base prevents the mortar slipping while in use. Clean with warm water and a small amount of detergent, avoid rubbing with a metal scourer. Do not soak pestle for long periods in water.

I'm thrilled to have been able to buy yuzu. I have bought two 500g batches which are in the freezer waiting for the Seville oranges to appear in the shops. I'm just sitting on my hands, waiting to make some Yuzu and Seville Orange Marmalade for the first time ever. I think it will be stupendous! It's a great way of using the entire fruit with next to no wastage. I would imagine that yuzu have a high pectin content that will help the marmalade set.
Thank you Hilary, the Yuzu & Seville Orange marmalade sounds divine - what a great idea! Hope it turns out well for you :)
Fresh product is great, arrived in no time. Looking forward to growing my plant
Thank you Alan, best of luck with the plant!
