Dried Corn Husks in Bowie/Annapolis area?

odkaty | Jan 8, 2008 04:52 PM

I'm trying to make tamales for the first time ... have the recipe, have the masa. I can't find corn husks (or plantain/banana leaves). Any ideas?

I've tried the following: Trader Joes (Annapolis), Whole Foods (Annapolis), Safeway (Annapolis, Bowie, and Waugh Chapel).

I still need to check Giant, Shoppers, David's and?

I can buy them from Amazon, but the $6.95 in shipping is a bit steep!

And while I'm looking for corn husks, any ideas where I can find black lentils? Or rice paper? I regularly bought both at the Annapolis Whole Foods until a few months ago.
