Quote of the Day: El Salvadoran Sour Cream


This is why I sometimes hate foodies. Here is Tyler Cowen explaining how to top off your frozen corn tamales after steaming them for ten to twelve minutes:

Serve with El Salvadoran white sour cream on top or to the side. (Honduran or Guatemalan white sour cream will do in a pinch.)

In a pinch! God only knows what chaos might ensue if you tried Nicaraguan sour cream!

(I’m kidding. Honest. But still.)

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
