  • Basic prep

    For firm polenta: Bring 4 cups water or stock to boil. Very slowly whisk in 1 cup polenta. Continue whisking 3 to 5 minutes, until it thickens. Reduce heat to the lowest setting, and let the polenta simmer slowly for 30 to 60 minutes, until grains are fully softened. Stir occasionally to prevent scorching. Pour into a greased bread pan, and chill 2 hours. Slice and prepare as desired.

    For soft polenta: Use 5 cups water or stock, and exclude molding and chilling steps. Serve hot from the pan.

    Storage & handling

    Store in a dry, cool place.
