Tamale-Making Party to celebrate the new year!
historic Geercrest farm, TBD, 2-4pm
Celebrate fruits of our fields by wrapping up heirloom corn masa for nutrient-dense, tasty tamales! Begin this hands-on workshop with a flavorful sample flight of filling options including Smoked Ancho Short Rib and Caramelized Red Onion & White Bean steamed with nixtamalized and milled dough locally grown as the historic GeerCrest Farm summer crop! Ideal seed for spring planting is stored for the winter, so the extra seeds featuring a classic balance of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals are best to share freshly dried!
By the end of the workshop, you will know where to purchase organic heirloom whole corn kernels if you like to prepare them yourself with culinary limestone, and you will know where to find ready-to-mix organic heirloom yellow and blue corn if you would like to simply blend the dough directly before assembling the tamales.
Customize a tamale kit you can serve for dinner or freeze for a rainy day, plus take home a jar packed with trimmed GeerCrest organic corn husk (never fumigated or bleached) ready to share with family and friends for your next tamale meal together (all for $30!). Or, if you would rather observe the process, then choose a $5 ticket to enjoy the sample tamales, collect the recipes for corn nixtamalization and flavorful fillings, and gather ingredients when the time is good for you!
