THOMAS S. SILVT9,
Whatlxa lomal-. a Tomali cr To
malleyer Tomal as liicnvted by a
Chicago Taper. a-
Another Chicago paper has entered
into a discussion of the tomale eubjec',
and it has still another derivation of the
word from any heretofore given. The
Herald of jesteidiy says editorially what
will be read with interest in view of the
recent discussion of the subiect in Rock
Island. Here is the Herald's article:
The sovereignty of Illinois may be
called in to settle a question for whose
disposal supreme court record contain
no precedent. What is a tamalT Jo what
respect is a tamal plus an olive&uperier
or inferior to a tamal minus an vlive?
The battld of the tamals may seem at
first onset somewhat irrelevant in this
community when its concentrated intelli
gence is focused on an investisrition of
municipal bribery. But a brief account
of the true tamal will show that this view
is wholly erroneous. One of the tamal
contestants alleges that the tamal is a
Spanish dish. This is not strictly true,
but it is partially so. The tamal strictly
is a Spanish-American dish, a Creole
among culinary delicacies, a mixture of
native American with imported ingredi
ents constituting it, when judiciously
prepared, a most tempting morsel. There
are various tarrala and there are spurious
tamals. tamals that do not deserve the
name of tamal at all. For in the ingen
ious process by which a true tamal is pre
pared temptation is great to make a false
tamal or to make it partially true and
That the tamal is a true American arti
cle ia shown by the fact that its first, chief
and indispensable ingredient ia Indian
earn. It is, in fact, a dumpling made of
Indian corn meal and is. therefore, the
little brother of Murphy bread, aa bread
made of corn meal is now coming to be
known throughout the old world, owing
to the faithful exertions of Col. Murphy,
agent of the treasury department for the
introduction of American corn in Eurrpe.
The first ingredient of the true tamal is
Indian corn n cal billed to exactly the
right consistency and flavored as only a
Spanish American knows how to flavor
cornmeal. For cornmeal unfavored is
insipid and tastes as Thoreau said a cer
tain fish did, like boiled brown paper
salted. The truly flavored Indian corn
meal makes the pastry part of the tamal.
Once the outside is ready the inside must
be considered. Now, the inside of a true
tamal may be chopped meat of any kind
ham, chicken, tongue or all three
minced very fine and seasoned just to the
flavor of the tamal, for it is possible to
destriy a trnnal if the seasoning of the
meat be not perfectly true to the flavor
ing of the meal
Then comes the supreme test of the
tamal chef When the meal case is just
right for the minced inea and the minced
meat is just right for the meal casing,
hw shall the combination be perfectly
brought togMlur in a bite that is more
savorv than anv like compound known to
cooks? It must be firmly rolled and
gently pltced ina a liquid in which the
husk of Ir.dian corn is in solution. This
is the Si cret of the true tamal. Boiled
in anything eUe there is not the due pre
cipitation of certain latent fl Ivors and
fl ids that are not to be found in any
thing else in the world. The husk of
Indian corn contains juices and proper
ties for 11 tvoring that only experts in the
lower half of this continent lully under
stand. Thus prepared, the tamal may be re
commended for tvery weather, for every
c irae. The tnmalero and tamalera
of Mexico and countries farther
south are far more popular than even
the coppt r colored itinerants who
monotonously drone out "dultbes!"
dulces, sweets on the languid air
of the tropics. The tamal is an
ece.ri.izvr. as the dulce is the promotor of
dreams, and bad ones; the tamal is a
source of healib, the dulce of indigestion
The tamal is far superior to the sandwich
because the sandwich is generally made
of adulterated baker's bread and the mus
tard is often put on butter over the al
leged ham Now, mustard on butter
m iy uit T n.mtny short-hair of the ab
original type. But it won't do in the
refined west, and anybody caught put
ting mustard on butter in a sandwilch in
this community should be sent to saw
wood for 24 hours with a bad Siw and on
In the true ttmal mustard plays irs own
part, and i bat is another secret of the
true tamal. For in the tamsl countries
butter is almost unknown and mustard or
one of its equivalents is to be had in
abundince. In tBmal countries the na
tivts beiiere the tamal to have been am
brosia of the real Olympus. Our rival
tamaleros scoulci not go to the courts or
the police with their competition. Let
them be true democrats and go to the
people. They are disputing over a vain
tliintr. Let them permit consumers to
determine whether they will hve olives
or not, and it should be remembered that
all people cannnt eat olives. Bi'Bides, if
the oil and acid be not just riht, the
olive being a little too young or a little
too old, it is neither agreeable nor whole
some. A quarter of an olive mav be
chopper! iu with the minced meat. Then
the true IhuiVi savs to the cook:
Turn the key deft'y in the oiled wards,
Aud real the hashed unkft of my soul.
Ke,.;s aid not write this of tbe tamal;
in fact, it is from his sonnet on Sleep.
But it fits tbe tamal to perfection.
