Don't know if you know what this is , but it is a very Puerto Rican nicety!!
Yes, I know what they are! And they are delicious. Do you know how that machine can be located? Thank you,

Default Guayo

HI, if you would like a machine to make the alcapurias or the pasteles you would have to contact a local "artesano" or a PR novelty shop sometimes they have the machine available. Over here they used to sell the machine in a store called the kitchen shop I know becuse my grandfather used to make them and sold it to local shops. Try looking into the classifieds in the local newspaper ™ El Nuevo Día If you need any help don't hesitate in contacting me. best of luck! gato

Default Electric Guayo

Hi All,

I just made over 150 pasteles yesterday with my mom, cousin and two daughters, its a family affair . I was ready to make them by hand, as we always do...and my mom surprised my with an electric guayo she borrowed from her neighbor. It was really cool!!! It was a pressure cooker converted into what looked like a giant food processor with a handmade grater attached to the bottom of the pressure cooker inside and the moter was welded to the bottom of the pressure cooker.

We put the whole (peeled) veggies into a pvc pipe built into the pressure cooker lid. It took us all of 15 minutes to grate approx. 40 pounds of vianda for the masa. I was amazed!!!!

From what i can find you can only buy these in puerto rico and they can run anywhere from $150 to $300, but I did find a website that makes an attachment for a black and decker food processor ($30 at walmart) and this guayo looks just like the one that was in the pressure cooker guayo we used yesterday. Heres the link: [URL]http://www.masaperfecta.mybisi.com[/URL]

I am going to order one and buy the food processor from walmart because its alot cheaper and like i said before it looks exactly like what we used yesterday.

Happy Holidays and Good Eats!
Jacqui
