Growing local

I've just harvested ginger and will be drying and grinding some. Also, there is a lot of turmeric dried, but not processed left over from last year. Having spent the last half hour achieving four teaspoons of ground turmeric with my mortar and pestle, I'm keen to find a better (MUCH BETTER) way to do the job.

Does anyone have a spare coffee/spice grinder, or are there any hints on what would be the best one to buy?

Thanks for those ideas, Andy and Dave. I think one of my daughters has a NutriBullet she doesn't use, so I might be able to snaffle that one, and if not ten bucks at Kmart won't break the bank.

I don't have a spare but I just bought a really cheap electric one at Kmart. Works a treat. From memory it was a little over $10.

I use NutriBullet for grinding. Nuts. Coffee. Spices. Blends. Given its versatility it's one of my kitchen essentials. Ours is powerful enough -- the 900 series(900 watt motor).

That is does anyone have a spare grinder to sell?
