Dried corn husks

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Dried corn husks are the dried leaves that enclose an ear of corn. The flat, thin, pale brown husks are most commonly used as wrappers for tamales. They are sold in plastic bags, sometimes already trimmed and flattened. Store in a dry place, where they will keep for up to a year. Before use, the brittle leaves must be soaked to make them pliable.
