fresh masa

alismith2 | | Mar 7, 2008 05:26 PM

Want to start making my own tortillas--can't find good fresh ones, so as soon as i find a press, I am going to start making my own. Best I ever had were fresh made in Guatemala (all over Guatemala), and that is what I'm aspiring to do. If I get good at it, I will start to sell them on a small scale. does anyone know of a source of fresh masa? Thanks.

PS just made an amazing batch of red-chile blue-corn chicken posole with lime and cilantro , from the base mix from Los Chilleros. I highly recommend their dried posole mix. I added chopped onion, cubed chicken breast, fresh cilantro, fresh lime juice and salt to their basic mix and it is outstanding. Now just need to make those fresh corn tortillas......
