Tonight, while I was cooking our homegrown corn with homemade masa tamales *, a stroke of genius struck me.
*(considered a well rounded dinner in San Antonio. Corn can be considered a part of any and all food groups.)
It all happened in our kitchen counter compost container. Wait a second, I said to myself. We make homemade tamales at our house* and we have fresh homegrown corn husks, could we not dry our own corn husks?
* (by we, I mean, my father-in-law and by, at our house, I mean, at their house.)
So I took to the google. There were hilariously long ...drawn... out... 7 step lists for how to dry your own corn husks that I can boil down into 1 step for you all. 1.Dry the husks in the sun- will save for up to a year in a dry place. Well, I'll be. Our Christmas tamales just got a little homegrown.
