Mortar and pestle or electric grinder?

bxgirl | Mar 27, 2009 06:23 AM

I just placed an order with Penzey's for a bunch of spices/herbs. Included are celery seeds and mustard seeds.
If a recipe calls for ground spices, is is better to use a mortar and pestle to grind celery seeds or an electric grinder (I think most peole use a coffee bean grinder?) In either case, I will have to purchase either the mortar and pestle or grinder, so which is more useful and the wiser investment?
