  1. 4 c Water

  2. 1 ts Salt

  3. 1 1/2 c Polenta (coarse cornmeal)

  4. 30 minutes, while stirring. Or cook the polenta in a double boiler over simmering water for 45 minutes, giving it a stir every

  5. 15 minutes or so. If you wish to serve the polenta soft, keep it over the heat in a double boiler until needed. To make firm polenta, pour it into a pan and set it aside; after a while it will cool and firm up. Turn it out of its pan and cut it into 1/2-inch slices. To broil or grill the polenta, brush both sides of each slice with olive oil and cook until lightly browned. The slices can also be fried in butter or olive oil, either until lightly colored or until crisp, and they can be used as layers in a casserole. DEBORAH MADISON - PRODIGY GUEST CHEFS COOKBOOK
