How to Make Puerto Rican Cornmeal Dumplings
- Wash banana leaves, dry & cut eight 8x8 squares. You can freeze the remainder if you have any left.
- Mix cornmeal, anise, coconut milk, salt and honey to form a doughy mixture.
Form dough into 8 rolls (like sausages)
- Place one cornmeal roll in the middle of each banana leaf square.
Roll the leaf and tie each end with string.
- Drop the rolls into 8 cups boiling water with 1 teaspoon salt.
Cook for 30 minutes.
Remove from water, cut string from ends and serve. (The cornmeal rolls will slide right out of banana leaf.
