Basic Polenta

. . No comments:
Polenta is so easy to make that you really shouldn't buy this if you plan on eating this with any frequency.  You can buy an inexpensive thing of corn meal for a couple bucks, if you go organic, it's about double.  Rather than pay $2-4 for 1 lb of pre-made polenta.

As long as you seal the corn meal well, like in a air tight container, this will keep for a long time.

  • 5 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups coarse corn meal
  • sea salt

  • Bring water to rapid boil.  Reduce heat down to medium high.
  • Do not dump the whole amount of corn meal in at a time, rather 2-3 tablespoons at a time.  
  • Quickly, using a whisk, whisk the cornmeal with the boiling water until thorough mixed.
  • Keep adding 2-3 tbspns at a time to the water and mixing thoroughly with a whisk.  If you use a wooden spoon, this will clump.  A whisk is vital to creamy, smooth polenta.
  • Season with sea salt.
  • You can also add 2-4 tbpns of butter if you'd like for more taste.
