Today was the first time I tried making tamales and I don’t know why, but they just suck.
I probably didn’t soak the husks long enough, they just wouldn’t fold up nicely or even stay folded. And spreading the dough on the husks was crazy hard for me.
And I ended up using only 3/4ths of the dough and about 2/3rds of the meat.
I didn’t have a nice big steamer basket and the one I used was much to small for how many tamales I made. They kept sliding off.
I don’t think I’ll ever make tamales again.
They are steaming and I sure hope that they taste good when they are done.
