Chef-Grade Masa Flour (Harina) — 2.2lbs

Our product specialist Maria says: “As a first-generation Mexican-American who has made tamales and tortillas under the stern, loving brow of my dear abuelita, this is by far the most superior masa flour I have ever used in Mexico or in the states.”

Made from the white olotillo varietal, Masienda’s Chef-Grade Masa Flour was crafted to deliver ease of use and a quality masa dough superior to anything you’ll find on grocery store shelves. I even did a taste test with my tamales. No contest. This is simply the best.”

Here’s how to use it:

1 Chef-Grade Masa Flour : 1.4 water* (by weight e.g., 1 kg : 1.4 kg)

If you do not have a scale, one packed cup of Chef Grade-Masa Flour requires approximately one scant cup of water (by volume). Just feel it out.

Slowly add the water to the dry masa flour in a large bowl, stirring the masa to incorporate evenly by hand (you may also choose to use a standup mixer with paddle extension). Knead until the water is evenly incorporated and no dry, powdery spots remain. Add salt, spices and seasonings to taste (optional), evenly incorporating throughout finished masa. If aiming for a masa for tortillas, you want a finished masa that is moist to touch, but not tacky (leaving bits of wet masa on your hand and fingers).

Once prepared, use immediately, or rehydrate with additional water before use (if waiting several minutes before use).

Tortilla Note: For additional hydration during tortilla cooking process, we recommend using a spray bottle/mister to lightly hydrate each side of the tortilla (to prevent dryness and cracking).

*Warm water (~100 degrees F, or the hot setting on your faucet) is recommended, in order to begin blooming the natural flavor of the masa and to fully activate the small bits of pericarp (corn skin) in the masa flour (which help the masa bind, naturally).

Notes:

1 lb of Chef-Grade Masa Flour yields approximately  2.4 lb of service-ready masa (38 tortillas, weighing 1 oz each before cooked—84 tortillas in each 2.2 lb bag of Masienda Chef-Grade Masa Flour)

Store in cool, dry place for up to a year.

Ingredients: Non-GMO heirloom corn (premium), trace of lime

* Water can be substituted with other liquids such as stocks, broths, juices etc., depending on the desired flavor. Spices may also be added.

 

 


 

 

MasiendaAll corn from Masienda is completely non-GMO grown on small farms using regenerative agricultural practices. It has never been treated with pesticides or fumigants.

Every heirloom corn varietal comes from hand-selected seeds preserved by farmers for hundreds (and sometimes) thousands of years, with the flavor and quality of the corn further perfected with each passing generation. Heirloom corn is nothing like the hybrid corn that makes up 99.9% of what we know in the US (even the organic stuff): it’s the OG superfood.
