South Texican Kitchen Talk with Grandma Ollie: The Molcajete

OMGSDFWFOOD - Molcajete

Last week, Grandma Ollie stayed at our place to visit, and during our many adventures together, I decided to tape some of our conversations (with her permission, of course).

This particular morning, we were admiring one of my molcajetes that my Tia Eloisa had given me. A molcajete is a Mexican-style mortar and pestle made from lava rock and is an essential tool in any Mexican or Tex-Mex kitchen, like mine!

Grandma Ollie is 97 and still inspires me today, as I’ve stated before. She truly is a pistol and plays a huge part in why I do everything for the love of food. She taught me love comes in many forms and can be leveraged as a seasoning.  In this quick video, she demonstrates how to season and use a molcajete!

PS – She’s going to kill me for posting the pic with the sombrero. So, it was nice knowing you all… Ajua!
