Coarsely milled whole maize grain is an excellent base for many flavourful dishes and has a lovely texture when cooked.

How to Use: When cooked, it has a soft, creamy texture, like rich, smooth mashed potatoes. It can also be cooled to form a solid block that can be cut and eaten hard. It makes a great side dish for meat and can be substituted in place of potatoes, rice or other grains. 

Polenta has a great yield, making four cups cooked from one cup of dry polenta.

To cook, bring three cups of water to the boil, then slowly add one cup of polenta while stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Cook over low heat stirring frequently for the first 10 minutes, then cook for a further 15, or until the grains feel soft when rubbed between the fingers. 

Polenta has a tendency to splatter when being cooked, so take care not to get in the firing line! It can also be cooked in stock to impart more flavour.

If you prefer hard polenta, simply spoon the cooked creamy mixture into a tray and allow to cool. It can now easily be cut and eaten as is, or grilled or fried to give it a richer flavour and beautiful golden colour.
