Whole Wheat tortillas are a snap to make at home. While I really enjoy corn tortillas in order to make them you really should have a good tortilla press – such as the homestead tortilla press you can build for yourself. Whole wheat tortillas don’t require a press – only a rolling pin.
There are two “tricks” to making whole wheat tortillas;
- Once you’ve kneaded the dough let the dough sit covered for at least a half hour
- Don’t use a seasoned or greased cast iron skillet – it will smoke. I keep one cast iron skillet that is used just for the production of tortillas – corn and whole wheat.
It really is that simple to make great tortillas – and fresh tortillas are great in addition to being cheap to produce in your own home.
