Do You Throw Your Masa Down The Drain?
I don't, because I don't make tamales, but if I did make tamales probably some of the masa would get spilled in the sink and go down the drain. I would think like a lot of people--just run lots of very hot water down and that will take care of it. Not so I learned today. This time of year masa in the drains cause city utilities a lot of headaches. Sticking in the pipes like cement. I've ate my share of tamales but never wanted to make my own. Lots of hard work and hot work usually here in south Texas. I've never heard this warning before. I wonder why it took so many years for someone to give out this warning. Is there anyone here in blogs who have made tamales? Do people eat them in your state like we do here in south Texas? If you do eat them what do you eat with them or on them? I like a slice of bread and a slice of onion with mine and John douses his with catsup. He would like chili on them but we can't wait that long to make some or open a can. When we get home with a dozen of hot tamales we're ready to eat. Humm good.
