All orders are shipped signature release. This means FedEx will leave the package at the doorstep, front desk or gate associated with the shipping address without requiring a signature upon delivery. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that the contents of the package are stored in a freezer or refrigerator promptly after delivery. FoodyDirect cannot be responsible for orders with incomplete or invalid addresses, or that are sent to recipients who are not available to store the contents of the order on the day of arrival. FedEx cannot deliver to a P.O. box.

Storage & Care

Tamales can be refrigerated in their sealed bag for up to 3 to 4 days. If you don’t plan on enjoying your tamales within 4 days, you can freeze them for up to 6 months. Once prepared, you can store any uneaten tamales in a sealed plastic bag for 2 days in your refrigerator, or 2 months in your freezer. Tamales can be reheated in your microwave, wrapped in plastic, for 3 to 4 minutes.

Frozen Tamales should be defrosted in the refrigerator overnight before preparing.

Preparation:

For an authentic tamale experience, tamales must be heated using steam. Any kind of steaming apparatus with a lid will work—a stovetop vegetable steamer basket, rice steamer, double boiler, bamboo steamer, or a spaghetti pot steamer. The setup should be such that the water level is below where the tamales will rest.


Keeping tamales in their foil, carefully place them into the steamer once the water is boiling. The foil holds the tamales together while they steam. (Tip: turn the heat off for safety while loading, then back on after loading.)


Steam the tamales (covered) for 60 to 75 minutes. If necessary, carefully add hot water while you steam to replenish and ensure the steamer does not run dry.


To check for doneness – carefully unwrap a cornhusk from one of the tamales. If the masa dough sticks to the cornhusk or appears too soft, then steam your tamales longer. Enjoy!
