    Hi Caroline, seeing as you are a pestle and mortar fan, I wonder if you might be able to help out? Recently I bought some flax seed and I tried to pound it in the pestle and mortar but nothing happened! They just ran around in circles following the pestle. Can you suggest how I might get them to a paste? Fran

    Fran: If salt is included in your recipe, I suggest you use that in the pestle and mortar with the flax seeds. I always find that salt, especially if you’ve got large flakes of sea salt although any type helps, puts a halt to the spices/seeds trying to escape. Hope this helps!
