My mom is a great cook,
She likes to make things from scratch.
Even the process is
As in making salsa.
She says that the salsa tastes better
when made in the molcajete.
A molcajete is a mortar carved out
of lava rock. I have one,
it used to be hers. I never use
it, it just sits on my kitchen bookshelf
I don't know if the salsa tastes better when it's
made in the molcajete vs. a blender.
I just know my mom can make
a mean salsa, and gucacamole,
and tortillas, and enchiladas, and vegetable soup,
and posole, and...the list is endless.
