    1 1/2   c            Water
    1       c            Yellow cornmeal
    1       x            Vegetable oil for frying
      1/2   t            Salt
    1       c            Freshly grated Edam
    1       x            Gouda, or cheddar cheese
 
     Combine the water and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Pour
   in cornmeal slowly but steadily, and stir until the mixture is thick
   and smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese.  Mix well and
   cool.
     Heat about 1/3 cup vegetable oil in a large, heavy skillet.  Take
   small portions and shape into sticks 3 inches long and about 1 inch in
   diameter. Drop in the hot oil and fry until golden brown all around.
   Drain on paper towel cover to keep warm.  Yield: 18 corn sticks
   Note from cookbook:  These Puerto Rican snacks are served warm with
   a drink as a side dish along with meat or fish.
