Can you ever season a molcajete?
During a recent trip to Mexico I bought a Molcajete (mexican mortar and pestle) set. Now, after coming back and reading through a few blogs, I see that the molcajete I bought may be authentic, but it will also take months to fully season, and during this process, we will eat guacamole that would taste a bit like the molcajete itself. I am ok but I know my family will not stand it!
So my question is, is there a quick way to season the instrument? Apparently the stone is so soft that it will get ground along with the food.
In the event that there is no easy process, I found some internet sites that sell granite molcajete. Sounds great to me! Granite is very hard so no threat of chipping and mixing in food. Is that a good idea at the cost of losing some authenticity in the process?
I would love to hear your pointers and experiences!
