How to Grind With a Shotglass & Scissors

Save

You can quickly grind fresh or dried herbs using a shotglass and a pair of scissors. Grinding herbs prior to use breaks up cell walls to release essential oils that contain fragrance and flavor. Buying a dedicated herb grinder can be costly and is an unnecessary expense. Snipping the herbs with scissors allows you to control how coarse or fine the grind will be. Assemble a simple shotglass and scissors grinder to make quick work of any small vegetative matter.

Things You'll Need

  • Small sharp-tipped scissors
  • Shotglass with rounded interior
  • Use small sharp-tipped scissors to snip bits of fresh or dry vegetative matter into 1/2-inch pieces over a shotglass until it is a third full.

  • Lower the tips of the open scissors into the shotglass until they touch the bottom.

  • Slowly spin the shotglass as you open and close the scissors to snip the vegetative matter until the pieces are the desired size.
