Gomasio

1 cup sesame seeds
2 tablespoons of black, organic and unhulled sesame seeds
2 tablespoons of Himalayan sea salt

In a heavy pot, preferably cast iron, toast ingredients to make the gomasio for 10 minutes, while stirring over low heat.  The heavy pot will help with even toasting.  After it is toasted, immediately remove from heat and place in a large bowl to cool.

The mortar is a bowl, typically made of hard wood, ceramic or stone in this case the sirabachi is the mortar. The pestle is a heavy club-shaped, usually wooden or ceramic piece used to grind nuts or herbs to release the oils releasing more Flavors.
