Cornmeal cooked with salt and water to make a thick porridge-like food to use as a hot breakfast or a side dish with dinner.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 1/4 cups cornmeal
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix together cornmeal, water, and salt in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens, about 5 to 7 minutes.
If using as cereal, spoon mush into bowls and serve with milk and sugar, if desired. If frying, pour mixture into a loaf pan and chill completely. Remove from pan, cut into slices, and fry in a small amount of oil over medium-high heat until browned on both sides. Serve with sauce of your choice.
