Dry corn leaves for tamales or humitas, approx. 70 pieces (for approx. 30 tamales).
Corn husks are used in the preparation of tamales. They hold the filling together and help prevent it from drying out. The corn husks allow the steam to penetrate while the tamales or humitas cook. The corn husks must be soaked in hot water before wrapping the tamales and are not edible.
