Banana Leaves for cooking tamales 3 lb

Banana leaves (Hojas de Platano) are large with spiked edges and a solid center. Ranging from lime to olive green to dark green, these inedible pliable leaves can measure up to ten feet long and two feet wide. Used for wrapping a variety of food mixtures, the leaves impart a subtle aromatic quality to foods. Banana leaves are ideal for wrapping sweet to savory foods. Stuff with poultry, pork, beef, veal, hard-cooked eggs, cheese, vegetables, rice, beans, grits, herbs and fruits. Wrap a favorite recipe in a softened banana leaf cut to size; leave enough room to fold each leaf over to form a pocket; secure with string. Boil, steam, bake, barbecue, fry or smoke with folded side down. Hojas de platano para cocinar tamales.

¡Hojas perfectas!
Nececitaba hoja de plano para mis tamales navides y aqu en esta ciudad, no hab ninguna abarroter que las vendiera. Ases que las pedde Mexgrocer. Primero, me las vendieron a buen precio. Segundo, las hojas llegaron congeladas y en buena condici. Y en fin, me salieron los tamales fenomenales. Muchimas gracias Mexgrocer!
The leaves were 65% shredded and were not capable of producing a 12 by 12 leave.. many we're old or discolored and70% were torn or not capable of holding the masa. Foil was used. I guess you get what pay for?
ProsStill like the availability.
ConsGood leaves

Excellent product
I cook a lot of Colombian and Venezuelan specialties. These banana leaves are excellent for wrapping the large regional tamales.
ProsLarge and thin. Very easy to use and not too fragile.
Banana leaves need better shipping method
The banana leaves themselves were as expected. I have ordered these before and use them quite often. The shipping was the big let down. These are shipped frozen and should be priority
ConsShipping method should be improved. They came thawed and stinky. They sat in my mail box for one and a half day's. Please ship to door.
