Hojas de maiz para hacer tamales - Hojas para Tamal


Las hojas de maíz se deben remojar con anticipación, unas dos o tres horas; deben quedar suaves y flexibles. Se unta la masa que se ha preparado en la hoja, el tamal puede ser de cualquier tamaño, aunque se recomienda que sea del tamaño de una cuchara de cocinar, con la misma cuchara se le hace en el centro un espacio para poner el relleno. Una vez puesto el relleno, se cierran las hojas, procurando que el relleno quede en el centro de la masa, primero se cierra a lo ancho de la hoja y posteriormente longitudinalmente, quedando un paquete como de 10 cm de altura, 5 de ancho y dos o tres de espesor.
Ya que se tienen todos los tamales hechos se ponen el la olla exprés o en una vaporera. En la olla exprés se tardan 10 minutos aproximadamente y en la vaporera de 25 a 35 minutos. Se comen calientes (sin la hoja) y se puede acompañar con atole, chocolate caliente o champurrado (mas espeso).

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Visual observation

I have yet to use the husks. But by visual inspection, the packages appear to have many crenkledhusks instead of being flat across the husk. This is why I only gave a 3 star vote. They do look fine for consistent size. I hope I am pleasantly surprised about the smoothness.
