"Gilingang Bato" (Millstone)

In an era when there was no electric food processing equipment, our ancestors used the gilingang bato (millstone) to grind rice and other grains into flour. The end product is then cooked with other ingredients to make puto (rice cake). The gilingang bato comprises a stationary bedstone and a turning runner stone. The runner stone is rotated above the bedstone to conduct the grinding. It has a shaft that is typically made of wood.
