First, soak the molcajete in warm water for an hour, scrub and air dry. Then throw in handful of wet rice and grind it with the pestle until the rice is ground fine and turns grey. Remove rice and repeat the process until the rice remains white. Now, grind rock salt until it resembles table salt. Rinse and repeat until the bowl of the molcajete is "smooth". Now you're ready to season it by grinding four cloves of garlic, 1 tsp. of whole cumin and 1 tsp. each of salt and pepper. Allow this mixture to sit for 24 hours. Rinse and dry. Your molcajete is now ready for your first batch. Over time, the spices and vegetables used in the bowl will add rich flavor and depth, making each batch of salsa or guacamole a signature creation.
