and bring it to a boil.
Take two cups of blue (or any other cornmeal)
and add slowly to the boiling water.
Whisk until smooth. Continue cooking polenta
over a low heat for 40 minutes stirring most of the

You can either eat it now or pour it into a buttered
cookie sheet and let it cool. When it is cool cut it into
squares and fry on both
sides until nice and crispy. You can also
cut it into nice little scalloped edged circles with
a biscuit cutter.

This is a very inexpensive and healthy dish.
Cornmeal is a whole grain.
