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.

Hard to find item found here
December 18, 2019
I could not find these anywhere in Virginia! So happy when I found them here. They take extra care to make sure they are not stuck at the post office since they are fresh and need refrigeration. They did have slits in the leaves and a few leaves in the middle had turned brown. But I received more than I needed for my recipe and didn't need them in whole leaves to do my recipe. Over all a very happy experience. And my Puerto Rican neighbor couldn't believe I found banana leaves, she has been using foil for her traditional Christmas recipes from her culture. I told her about Mexigrocer and how they deliver to your door. She had never heard of you but said she was definitely going to give you a try.

¡Hojas perfectas!

Nececitaba hoja de plátano para mis tamales navideños y aquí, en esta ciudad, no había ninguna abarrotería que las vendiera. Así es que las pedí de Mexgrocer. Primero, me las vendieron a buen precio. Segundo, las hojas llegaron congeladas y en buena condición. Y en fin, me salieron los tamales fenomenales. ¡Muchísimas 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?
  • Still like the availability.
  • Good leaves

I cook a lot of Colombian and Venezuelan specialties. These banana leaves are excellent for wrapping the large regional tamales.
  • Large and thin. Very easy to use and not too fragile.

Banana leaves need better shipping method
August 29, 2015
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
  • Shipping 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.
