Mex-Sales Co., a small business located in Corpus Christi, Texas, introduces its very own tamale making demonstration video at TamaleSpreader.com. This video demonstration will provide instructional information on how to make tamales from start to finish.
Mex-Sales Co. Tamale Making Demonstration Video will guide viewers through the tamale making process using a mixer, food processor and blender and the key instrument to mass production of tamales a Tamale Masa Spreader. “Tamales are a very special homemade food and the creator, you, will decide what dough to use, the seasoning, thickness of the dough, how they are wrapped, if hot or mild and if they will be made with oil, lard or shortening,” says Sandra Vasquez, inventor of the Tamale Masa Spreader. "Tamale makers need a visual guide and our website TamaleSpreader.com is the key to make tamales fast and easy.”
Traditionally masa spreading was performed by using the back of a spoon. Spreading using a spoon is hard work and mastering an even spread may take many years. “If you’ve ever made tamales, you know the most time consuming part of the tamale making process is the spreading of the masa or dough.” “All the other tamale making steps are easy,” says Sandra Vasquez, inventor of the Tamale Masa Spreader. The Tamale Masa Spreader makes it easy to spread tamale masa dough onto a cornhusk or banana leaf. Just one stroke is needed to master a perfect even spread of dough.
Today, Tamales are not as complicated to make as history recalls them. It is no longer an all day affair if you have video demonstrations. The Tamale Making website is modernizing tamale making. Kneading the dough by using a mixer instead of hands, a blender to grind the spices in place of a rock molcajete , a food processor replacing the meat grinder, and the Tamale Masa Spreader replacing the spoon.
The Tamale Masa Spreader is equipped with tracks and angles, which are instrumental features to an even spread. The tracks contain the masa and the angles gauge the thickness of the dough. Using the front end of the spreader pick up masa, place it on husk, lock in place, and slide down towards the end of the husk. The thickness is controlled by the amount of pressure you apply at the angles.
“It is no longer an all day affair if you have a Tamale Spreader and a good recipe,” says Vasquez. The Mas Tamales Masa Spreader is the most essential utensil needed to mass produce tamales at home.
