1 Cup cornmeal (medium or course ground)
5 Cups water/stock/milk
Salt to taste
- Bring the liquid over high heat and sprinkle in the cornmeal, stirring constantly with a whisk.
- Bring to a boil stirring frequently and let boil until polenta thickens enough to spit.
- Bring it down to a simmer and cook for 45-60 min stirring frequently so it doesn’t stick to the bottom and burn. Add salt to taste.
- Stir in a couple of pats of butter or olive oil and maybe some parmesan before serving.
