Corn Meal Mush
1 cup corn meal
1 cup water
1/4 tsp. salt
Honey, maple syrup or sugar to taste
Put all ingredients in a small sauce pan and stir, bringing to a boil. After the cereal cooks for 30 seconds to a minute, it will be done. When it is hard to stir and there are blobs of cereal flying up in your face, it is probably done. Serve with a little milk and sweetener of your choice.
Sometimes corn meal mush is also called "polenta".
You can also let the corn meal mush solidify in the refrigerator, slice it up, and fry it in bacon grease or other animal fat to be used as a side dish.
