To make, place 4c of water in a pan of choice(I use a wide/shallow stainless chicken fryer for max evaporation and ease of stirring), when it begins to simmer, slowly add 1c of polenta while whisking(it should take 5-10min to add...shake it in), continue to stir for as long as it takes(it takes us 60-75min for a double batch). We use a silicone spoon, but any spoon works. When the polenta pulls away from the sides and seems to stick to itself, its done. while cooking, taste and add salt to taste.
For variations, you can add various herbs, mushrooms, onions, Sun dried tomatoes, parm cheese, replace some of the water with milk. You can also make it, set it in a baking pan(loaf works well),make slices that you then pan fry, deep fry(with or without flouring),broil, or bake.
This is a great, versatile product!! I removed one star for lack of directions/variations. I happen to be an experienced cook, however, the lack of clear instructions could leave some with 11pounds of confusion.
This is from Italy, where I think they don't use GMO corn!
I've had the contents of this package in a 9" X 13" pan in the refrigerator for about 3 weeks! It is still good!
It has a lot of uses. We've served it at breakfast, and it's really good topped with salsa.
Yes, we will buy this again!
