Every once in a while when my Grandma visits everyone will gather around and make tamales. We've been doing it for several years but usually my grandma does all the work. My Mom had to have jaw surgery and my Grandma is visiting so she can take care of her so we decided to make tamales. The ones on the right I made plus about 3 more dozen. They're so time consuming but worth it. If you don't know what tamales are, they are corn masa (dough) filled with pork, or beans, or other meats and wrapped up in a corn husk then steamed. Fantastic! That's all I really know how to explain them. And my Grandma's are the best I have ever had.
