Hello
I am trying to make corn tortillas at home and have been trying to prepare Masa Harina at home. The flour that I get after the nixtamalization process is similar to Corn Meal and therefore the consistency is different, more grainy and coarse. I used "Slaked Lime" to make the Nixtamal and dried corn purchased from the store. When I rinse the corn the following morning after boiling and soaking the corn overnight, the skin doesn't seem to peel off as shown in most of the videos. Any suggestions on what I can try to get the skin to peel off or to get the correct consistency?
