Masa Appeal

Upon listening to her college roommate recount her family's process of tamale-making that has been passed down through the generations, foodie designer Carley Sheehy created a DIY recipe kit that allows even the novice to roll up their sleeves and throw their own tamalada. In Mexico and many South American countries, tamales represent a holiday tradition that combines family and food into an all-day cooking marathon that ends in unwrapping some delicious "presents." Master the time-honored techniques with Carley's step-by-step instructions: make the masa, add your favorite fillings, wrap in corn husks, and steam. Once cooked, open and drape them in a piquant, three-pepper sauce of ancho, pasilla, and New Mexico chilies, and savor a taste of a rich culinary tradition. Starter kit makes about 16 tamales. Assembled in Livermore, California.

My husband and I had a lot of fun making these tamales. The instructions are easy to follow and lead to your learning the technique of tamale making. The result of our hard work was some of the most delicious tamales we've ever had. Very happy with this purchase!

Hot tamale

Comments about UncommonGoods DIY Tamale Kit:

Need idea for the cook in the family. We do a lot of Mexican type meals, so this fits right in. If this is gluten free then it might be a good selling point to add. Looks like it could be, but when in doubt we assume it isn't.

    My son is working in Wyoming. He was really missing Tamales. He said he couldn't find husk or dried chile. I saw this kit and smiled and had to send it.
