Making tamales is a labor of love but if you love them like I
do, you will find it worth it. I believe that your skill will improve the more
that you make them. (I am sure, though, that I do not have tamales in my genes
and that there are many people who can do a better job with them than I do.)
Note: These freeze well but let them cool before freezing. You can cook them from frozen in the pressure cooker on steam for 10 minutes.
