In Puerto Rico, pasteles (pas-TEL-les) are a cherished culinary recipe. The masa consists of a combination of grated green banana, green plantain and taro root. I remember my mom made these for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It brought the family together, especially when the grating needed to be done. She always made over a hundred. Tedious but so much fun. Times gone, but the memories remain.
