Learning about Molinos

posted in: Uncategorized 0

When the women of Teo said they wanted an automatic molino we were dumbfounded, not having any idea of what that was.  They told us it turned wet corn into masa which then becomes tortillas.  Today we went to see one in action in Pinalejo.

Little children arrived with bags of corn, in the hopper they went with water dripping in from above and out came masa.  Hopefully the photos tell the story.
