In search of large/long corn husks for tamales... Mid-peninsula preferred

RWCFoodie | Dec 4, 201403:27 PM

Every time I make tamales I buy dry corn husks at various Mexican markets in the Redwood City or South San Francisco area. I've never yet managed to get any that are large so my tamales are smaller than I'd like (it's the length that's the problem, I overlap for better width).

Was just watching a tamale making video that frustrated me as the husks she was using looked like they were over a foot long so the tamales she made were nice & long!

Does anyone have a particular brand of packaged ones or a certain store where I can get the bigger ones? I don't believe I ever see them in bulk, only in cello bags...

Appreciate any info.
