Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups boiling water just simmering
  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp butter, bacon fat or oil

Instructions
 

  • Mix cornmeal with cold water.
  • CAREFULLY add cornmeal to water that's just simmering. (Add it to boiling water and it will bubble and explode everywhere) 
  • Reduce heat, cover and simmer over low heat for an hour, stirring often. 
  • Pour into lightly sprayed/greased dish ( 8x8 or 9x9 ) and let cool in fridge for a few hours.
  • Cut into slices and pan fry in butter or oil over low heat until just lightly golden on both sides - about 10 minutes each side. Serve with maple syrup.
