This week, I'd like to show you one of my most prized vintage pieces. I would estimate this to be about 55 years old.
This is a vintage Molcajete ( mo-ca-heck-te ) which belonged to my grandmother. I spent many hours in my life time watching her grind up peppers, spices and garlic to add to mexican food with this tool. Funny, thing is, she did not call it by its proper name. She called it a piano. Don't know why. But sure wish I knew why she called it that. But that is what I have always known it as.
I am sure this is not a rare thing in many households. But it is a treasure and a wonderful memory in mine!! What about you? Do you have any kitchen tools that hold fond memories for you too?? Have a great Vintage Thingie Thursday!!!
