1 Cup cornmeal (medium or course ground)

5 Cups water/stock/milk

Salt to taste



  1. Bring the liquid over high heat and sprinkle in the cornmeal, stirring constantly with a whisk.
  2. Bring to a boil stirring frequently and let boil until polenta thickens enough to spit.
  3. 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.
  4. Stir in a couple of pats of butter or olive oil and maybe some parmesan before serving.
