Mortar and Pestle to make Pesto


Many have chosen to be lazy and try to make pesto with a food processor. However it is widely known that the best way to make pesto is by using a mortar and pestle.
Here is an Italian recipe for the traditional Pesto Genovese:

Ingredients:
2 cloves of garlic
a pinch of kosher salt
100 ml of extravergin olive oil
50 gr of basil leaves
30 gr of grated pecorino cheese
1 tbs of pine nuts
70 gr of grated parmesan

Instructions:
First of all basil leaves should not be washed, rather cleaned with a soft cloth.
Take the peeled garlic cloves and put them in the mortar with a bit of kosher salt. Start grinding.
When the garlic will look creamy add the basil leaves with a pinch of kosher salt and grind.
The grinding should be done towards the walls of the mortar, turning the pestle right and left and the mortar the opposite way.
Continue until the leaves will release a bright liquid, then add the pine nuts and keep grinding.
Add the cheeses a bit at a time, mixing all the time.
Last add the oil, slowly, in a thin line, while mixing.
Mix well until all is one cream.
All the grinding and mixing should be done exclusively in a marble mortar and using a wooden pestle. No metal should be involved.

Are mortar and pestle better than electric grinders?


It depends on what you need to grind. Some electric coffee grinders are very good for certain seeds for example, while substances like basil come out better tasting and with a nicer color when crushed with a mortar and pastle.
Also, if you need to produce big quantities of ground substances it would probably take you a long time to do it with mortar and pestle, and using an electric grinder would help you speed up the process.

Which is the best material for a mortar and pestle?


Mortar and pestle must be made of a hard enough material so that seeds and plants can be crushed without wearing away the tool, and so that the pounding and grinding won't break it.
The material should also be smooth and non-porous so that it won't absorb or trap the substances that are being ground.
There are a few materials that all more or less fit these requirements: ceramic, porcelain, glass, marble, stone, wood, bamboo, iron, steel, brass and basalt.
The choice among these is based on what use you need the mortar and pestle for.
For example rough ceramic is more fragile than stone but makes a finer powder. While glass, also fragile, is stain-resistant. Wood absorbs more easily but is very good for the grinding of salt and pepper at the dinner table. While metal mortars need to be kept lightly oiled.
I personally would suggest a heavy, thick, smooth marble mortar and pestle, as it is both very resistant to pounding, and grinds pretty finely. Marble is good with both liquids and dry seeds and plants, and it doesn't absorb odors and tastes as much as other materials, even tho it does get a bit stained and sometimes previous substances can still be smelled on it for a while.

I dont have a garlic press, what should I do?


I used to use a soup can to crush it, but then I bought a mortar and pestle. You can also chop it up with a knife, use a meat pounder, or use a food processor for large amounts.
