Action! …making corn tortillas

summary: Making corn tortillas from scratch WITHOUT a tortilla press is really easy; we had so much fun that we made another video (with sound!!); redrafted video (with titles AND sound!!); who says black cats are smart?

I LOVE making videos!! What shall we do next? :whee:

Please read more about making corn tortillas (includes recipe).

edit a little later: Ha! And I thought we were so brilliant. But after watching Hacer tortillas a mano (parte 2 de 2) I’ve changed what’s left of my mind. How cool is that?! And this one too!! Wow! How does she make that perfect round with her hands??

edit 26 June 2013: I noticed that there was a typo in the first video. At the end, the text should coincide with my voice-over and read “for 8 tortillas, you will need approximately one cup masa harina, half cup water and an eighth teaspoon of salt”. Here is the second draft of virtually the same video. Which version, if either, do you think is better?
