Category: Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/4 c Stone ground yellow cornmeal
  • 1 c Cold water
  • 3 c Hot water
  • 1 ts Salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/4 c All-purpose flour


Flour for dredging

In a small bowl, combine the cornmeal, salt, and flour. Gradually whisk the
cold water into the mixture. Bring the hot water to a boil in a large
saucepan over high heat and gradually whisk in the cornmeal mixture. Stir
and whisk until it boils. Cover, lower heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. The
mixture will be very thick. Pour into an oiled 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan and
refrigerate overnight.

The next day, cut the loaf into 1/2 inch slices. In a skillet, heat 2
teaspoons of oil or bacon fat. Dredge 3 or 4 slices in the flour and fry
them over low heat until golden brown on both sides. Continue to cook
remaining mush, adding oil to the skillet as needed. Serve with either
maple syrup or Tomato Gravy and plan on 3 to 4 slices per person.
