I am trying to make these today, getting ready to steam them, however I stood the packets on end for the steaming...my question is if not all of the tamales are eaten, can you store them in the husk,and covered for the next day or should the husk be removed?

Maybe the least authentic recipe I have seen online yet. From the meat to the actual wrapping. They are steamed however that part is right.

Massa is NOT corn meal. It is specially prepared corn flour. It comes in yellow or white, but is not the same as or interchangeable with cornmeal. Also, when spreading the dough in the husk, you want to end up with the meat completely surrounded by the dough. Like a filled dumpling. Traditionally, the husks wrap the filling & dough and are tied with a strand of corn husk.
