small things, big difference No1 – mortar and pestle

Technology does many things, but one thing that it doesn’t do (yet?) is appeal to our sense of smell.
Smell isĀ  surely the most neglected of the senses, or it is in this house at any rate.
So if needs arise grind and bash some toasted coriander and cumin seeds, or a few cardamon pods and smell. You’re life won’t turn around but it might be enough to make you pause even for a second.
