Dark Days Challenge Week 8- Creamy Polenta

Polenta is easy to make, friends. Damn easy. I promise! Once you make it, it will seem silly to buy one of those pre-made polenta rolls from the grocery store. Polenta is quick to make, it's good, and it's a great host to veggies, meats, and lots of yummy toppings!

Week 8

Creamy Polenta
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
source: West Wind Milling Co, 50 mile radius
1 tbsp salt
source: not local
2 cups water
source: tap water, ya'll!
2 tbsp butter
source: Calder Dairy, 50 mile radius

Cornmeal for polenta
  • Get out a deep skillet or frying pan! 
  • Add the 2 cups water, and set to a boil
  • Once water is boiling, add the salt, then add the cornmeal
  • Stir, and bring heat down to low
  • Cook until mixture thickens and cornmeal is tender 
  • Turn off the heat, and add butter. 
  • Stir until butter is incorporated, and add thyme, oregano, rosemary, chives, etc. as desired

                                                    It's that easy. Plate, serve, and Enjoy!
