Fine Instant Polenta
Fine Instant Polenta is pre-cooked, finely ground yellow cornmeal that requires significantly less cooking time than traditional polenta. Popular in Italian cooking, polenta is typically simmered to make a mush or porridge.
Bring 4 cups water or stock to boil. Very slowly whisk in 1 cup polenta. Whisk while simmering for 3 minutes, until very thick. Pour in greased loaf pan, and chill 2 hours. Slice and prepare as desired.
