Manolo's fresh corn tamales

Manolo's fresh blue corn tamales (tamales de elote azul)
Strip the ears of fresh corn with a sharp knife, grind the fresh cut kernels with a "molino". Season the mashed corn with sea salt and put a couple of spoonfuls of the corn puree on fresh husks and wrap them as little presents :) Steam for 10 or 15 minutes (we use the corn "bones" in the bottom of the pot instead of a steamer basket ) and serve with jocoque or yogurt cheese.
He does the cleaning, cutting and grinding and I wrap the little presents :)
