re: Your Guide to Tamales In New Orleans
Posted by Stadium Rat on 7/23 at 3:51 pm
[quote]Tamales are a good snack/meal, but arent the most-amazing things in the world[/quote] To me Manuel's were unlike any others I've ever had in my life. They were unique in taste, texture and amount of corn. For many, Manuel's just had something special that made them more than just a tamale. ...

Manuel's was the best for me. But a place in Lake Charles named Agave Tamale had one almost as good. Had that at the Freret St Fest a couple years ago. I think they're closed now....

After a bit of searching, I FOUND THE ORIGINAL POST about Iowa State fans smelling like corndogs. [link=(http://read-the-wombat.blogspot.com/2007/03/corn-dog-bulletin.html)]LINK[/link] The date is 2007. Edited to add: It's apparently not the origin, but it shows where it came from. ...

Make sure you take a look at the grease tray and how convenient it is. The George Foreman grill I had had a detached cup that was a pain to keep from knocking it over. Same with Cuisinart Griddler....

Take some dill pickles and juice, puree them, maybe add some water and or sugar, then freeze in popcicle molds. [img]https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSmX2U8Z7AJvWXIDB6w6Qp5cDT5ihpxdWZP0Id-2s_S-BqyVem9[/img] [img]https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR2os8jM...

I had Honduran tamales one time at a small festival put on by a Honduran church nearby. They were wrapped in banana leaves and were a different animal altogether. Almost all masa, but very flavorful masa. Tiny bits of meat and green pepper throughout. I've also had a cuban tamal from Churros Cafe...

I am not crazy about Guillory's. They're a little like Manuel's, but with more masa. The thing that gets me about theirs is how dense they are. High density is NOT a quality I want in a tamale. I admit, they're pretty decent on their tamale poboy....

Originally, all eggplants were small and white. That's why they have the name. I have heard that the skin on small eggplants is a bit tougher than the big purple ones. Take that into account when you use them....
