Kibbeh grinding set

Lebanese mortar and pestle with cover, for use in pounding meat to make kibbeh. Kibbeh is a dish combining ground raw lamb with cracked wheat, onion, mint, basil, cumin seed, cinnamon, salt and olive oil. The mortar (A) is made from a square block of marble. Also included are the wooden pestle-style grinder (B) and red enameled metal cover (C). The set was brought to the United States from Lebanon in 1922.
