Received this in email - reminds me of tamales a Honduran friend described. Since the banana plants are up & growing like crazy now I thought this is the right time to give this recipe a whirl. Given the time involved to make I plan to double recipe & freeze a lot of tamales. Received in email from gourmet-recipes-from-around-the-world. Thanks Lavender! Lavender noted - Aluminum foil may be substituted for banana leaves.
