How to Use a Pestle & Mortar

In this Video, Jamie Oliver shows you how to use a pestle and mortar, starting by grinding some peppercorns.

Quick Tips from Jamie:
Put a small amount at a time into the mortar, and add to it as you go
You should have just one layer of spices between the pestle and the mortar
Use gentle taps rather than big thumps. This will keep more of your spices or herbs inside the mortar
