Corn Husks are the dried outer paper thin leaves on a cob of corn. Used for centuries as a wrapper to boil, steam, and smoke dishes.
Used primarily to wrap foods (tamales) that will be steam cooked. Corn husks hold the tamales together and help keep them from drying out.
Grilling and roasting becomes easier with the use of corn husks.
The dried corn husks are soaked in hot water until pliable, then the excess water drained out & pat dry before being used to wrap food.
Ingredients: Dried corn husks, sulfur dioxide.
