Corn Husks, from Don Enrique® (a complete line of Latin items from Melissa’s) are extremely popular in Latin and Caribbean cuisine. In Mexico, corn plays an important role as a leading staple food and is found in some form at nearly every meal.Tamales, for the uninitiated, are a kind of steamed corn "dumpling" stuffed with a variety of meats and chiles or sweet fillings like pineapple or raisins. Don Enrique Corn Husks are generously sized and require minimal cleaning.

Store in a cool, dry place for an indefinite amount of time.

Corn Husks from Don Enrique should be soaked in warm water until pliable (about 2 hours) and rinsed prior to use. Do not oversoak.
