You can eat it like hot cereal, or chill it and
then fry it. This goes well with syrup as a breakfast
dish, or with savory sauces and vegetables for dinner.
Makes: 8 servings
1 1/4 cups cornmeal
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Mix together cornmeal, water, and salt in a medium
saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently,
until mixture thickens, about 5 to 7 minutes.
2 If using as cereal, spoon mush into bowls and serve
with milk and sugar, if desired. If frying, pour mixture
into a loaf pan and chill completely. Remove from pan,
cut into slices, and fry in a small amount of oil over
medium-high heat until browned on both sides.
Serve with sauce of your choice.
