fresh masa

Want to start making my own tortillas--can't find good fresh ones, so as soon as i find a press, I am going to start making my own. Best I ever had were fresh made in Guatemala (all over Guatemala), and that is what I'm aspiring to do. If I get good at it, I will start to sell them on a small scale. does anyone know of a source of fresh masa? Thanks.

PS just made an amazing batch of red-chile blue-corn chicken posole with lime and cilantro , from the base mix from Los Chilleros. I highly recommend their dried posole mix. I added chopped onion, cubed chicken breast, fresh cilantro, fresh lime juice and salt to their basic mix and it is outstanding. Now just need to make those fresh corn tortillas......

  1. I really don't think they sell fresh masa in NYC. If you find one, please post as I would be there in a sec.
