Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, and we will be baking a Tres Leches cake modified with lime, and maybe tequila, with fat spicy Mexican cookies, a tortilla soup, yummy empanadas, and strawberry tamales.
You've never had Strawberry Tamales before?
They're easy. Just add sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, strawberry juice and marmalade to the masa mix, then roll the masa around fresh sliced strawberries simmered in strawberry juice and tequila and steam like any other tamale.
They are very yummy.
With strawberries down to 88¢ a pound, I will make many of them nad freeze the extras - they freeze very well.
