Curing the Molcajete  
So I got one of these for Xmas from Casey:

It's very awesome! I've wanted one for a long time, but never got around to getting one. I did some research on it, and turns out you're supposed to cure it before you use it, so I just made a pasted of onion, garlic, and canola oil, and put it in to the oven to bake on for 1/2 hour. Then I need to grind down corn or rice to make sure any loose bits of grit are taken off.

It was gray when I started yesterday, but with the curing, it's now a lovely shiny black.
