Mortar and pestle

This small mortar and pestle is sold at a Korean grocery store. I used these to pound injeolmi (sweet rice cake). Here’s a photo of a Korean traditional mortar made of stone and a pestle made of wood. Both of my grandmothers had them in their backyard and always used them to pound grains and sesame seeds, and to make rice cake.
