    ... areas like Oaxaca, people tend to buy them instead! To make tortillas from scratch, corn is boiled for about five minutes and then left to soak overnight. We put some on to boil, then Oscar produced some 'here's some I made earlier' corn that had already soaked. We then rubbed off the outer layer of the corn and rinsed it a few times.
