How to make it

  • Mix the corn meal and 1 cup of cold water in a bowl.
  • Bring the other 2 cups of water to a boil and add the salt and then the corn mixture
  • lower the heat and cook 10-15 minutes until mixture is soft stirring frequently
  • For a variation and no stirring place in a double boiler and steam for 30 minutes, stirring is not necessary this way
  • serve with cream, maple sugar, brown sugar, honey, molasses, garlic, or any flavor syrup you like (chocolate is also good here)
  • ****pour unused mush in a greased loaf pan and chill overnight and the next morning slice the mush, dust with flour and brown in butter or bacon grease. Serve with any syrup
