El Metate

One of the oldest artefacts - and traditions - in Mexico is the use of the ‘metate’ or grinding stone for preparing staple foods such as corn (maize) tortillas. Volcanic stone metates have been found in caves and burial offerings dating back thousands of years. This is and old and traditional way to make tortillas, salsas, hot chocolate, tamales dough, and of course Delicious Mole.  This is the aztecs version of modern blender.
