Music composed and conducted by Arturo Rodriguez. Making real tortillas in Zacualtipán, State of Hidalgo, México. Includes grinding the "nixtamal" (dried field corn soaked in hot slaked lime and water). The lady uses a "metate", flat volcanic stone and grinding stone with both hands to get the "masa" dough. The dough is then pattered in a circular form, tossed a little and placed on the "comal", over the fire to get cooked. Enjoy a real tortilla, one at a time, not from powder, not form a machine.
