Like grits? Prepare to fall in love!
- 6 cup water or broth
- 1 tsp. sea salt or table salt
- 1 1⁄2 cup yellow cornmeal
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
In a heavy saucepan, bring the water to a boil and add salt. Gradually add cornmeal by handfuls in a thin stream into the boiling water, stirring constantly to prevent lumps, until all of the cornmeal has been added.
Reduce the heat to low and cook the mixture, stirring constantly, for 20–25 minutes, or until it becomes very thick and leaves the side of the pan (Patience! This step can take quite a while!).
Remove from heat and add olive oil.
Makes 6–8 servings.
