I have a mortar and pestle which just doesn't seem to work well. It is a really heavy stone bowl but I think the surface is maybe too smooth. Any time I try to use it to grind things to a paste it just sort of stirs them around. The only thing I can seem to use it for is grinding sesame seeds and sugar together. Any recommendations?
