September 12 is going to be our tamale making day, though as it gets closer, I’m going to recommend that you cook your meat the day before. You can read my original post here.
Some folks use coffee filters, and probably other things, to wrap their tamales. I prefer the corn husks.
This is a reminder: If you’re going to join us on tamale making day, be sure to get your corn husks ahead of time. You should be able to find everything else without any problems but those husks may be a problem for some.
If you can’t find the husks locally, Amazon has them. They may be expensive . . I didn’t really check the price but simply looked to see if they had them. Hispanic grocery stores, of course, will have them. Some Walmarts have them.
I have all my ingredients and I’m ready to make enough tamales to get us through the winter!
