    Very nice video, the difference between corn leaf and banana leaf is very VERY very great,
    the tamales are not comparable, the taste adn texture actually differs, with banana the tamale is more moist sweeter and something more the banana leaf adds that you can explain, that was a real treat for me when I was a child in Mexico. Enjoy!

    That’s what I wanted to know: is there a great difference in taste between banana wraped and corn wrapped tamales? I would imagine so, but in what way; are the banana tamales sweeter in the masa (because it will be the masa that picks up the “spice” of the wrapping)? My experience is only with corn husk wraps and I’ve used them on various styles of tamales, from seafood, vegitarian, fruit, sweet anise and raisin, pulled pork with red chile, pulled chicken with green chile, and beef w/chile.

    There is a difference in taste because it picks up the flavors of the corn husk or banana leaf. However, the most significant difference to me is how the tamal inside of the banana leaf doesn’t dry out.

    She’s putting them on banana leaves…I wonder, what is the difference in taste in comparison to the tamales on corn sheaves? It probably has alot of difference in taste depending on how the different masas were prepared and what the filling was.
