       Title: Polenta
  Categories: Breads
       Yield: 6 servings
  
       6 c  Water
       2 t  Salt
       2 c  Polenta meal*
  
   * - or yellow cornmeal
   
   1. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a 4-quart saucepan. Add salt to
   taste. Slowly add meal in fine stream, stirring simultaneously with
   wooden spoon.
   
   2. Continue to cook over low heat, stirring mixture constantly, about
   1 hour. Additional boiling water, 1 tablespoon at a time, may be
   added if mixture becomes too thick to stir.
   
   3. Cook 3 additional minutes without stirring, shaking pot slightly so
   steam forms under polenta. Pour polenta onto wooden surface - about 18
   inches in diameter - that has been rinsed with cold water.
   
   4. Use spatula to spread polenta into circular mound. Slice or cut
   into wedges by sliding piece of kitchen twine underneath, then
   drawing up through polenta.
