Large wooden mortars and pestles were used to pound herees, unbroken wheat grains, used to cook a dish with the same name. Two women, using long wooden pestles, alternated pounding the grain until it was half broken. The grain was then boiled with meat and vegetables. Gand (compressed sugar imported from Poland that came wrapped in blue paper and was attached to a rope for hanging), spices, yigit and coffee were ground in smaller metal or yellow copper vessels.
