Classic-style, authentic polenta from new-crop white or yellow flint corn. It displays appealing corn aroma and flavor, and a silky, beaded texture when properly cooked. Gluten Free.
Basic directions: Add 1 cup of polenta to 3 cups of water, soak for 30 minutes, then bring to a gentle boil. Add a pinch of salt and 2 Tbsp butter. Simmer on low for up to 1 hour, stirring every couple minutes until the grains are soft and creamy. Add milk, cream or cheese, and any powders or spices toward the end.
Tips and uses: Polenta is versatile and delicious. Use it to bake cornbread, dust the bottom of pizza dough, or, cooked slowly, to make a porridge with cream and butter. Soaking for as little as 30 minutes can significantly reduce the cooking time. Generally, lower heat and consistent stirring work best to prevent burning.
Ingredients: Heirloom variety, organic polenta. Nothing else.
