CORN POLENTA - Gluten Free

POL-5

Description:

Corn is the only grain whose origin can be traced to the Americas. When Christopher Columbus landed in modern day Cuba some of his crew went inland and came across maize. Corn was then brought back to Europe. In Italy Corn is most often served as Polenta. This dish comes from the Lombardy and Veneto regions of Italy. Polenta can carry many different flavors and is a filling, nutritious dish. Fine Polenta has a slightly less coarse grind than traditional Polenta and has a shorter cooking time.

Ingredient Statement:

Degermed Yellow Corn Meal.

Polenta is coarsely ground Yellow Cornmeal, used in Italian cooking. Season with herbs, spices, sauteed mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes or garlic to make a delicious side dish or entree. Polenta can be sliced, baked or fried. Serve Polenta hot and topped with maple syrup for breakfast.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Bring 4 cups water or stock to boil, very slowly whisk in 1 cup polenta.  Whisk while simmering for 3 minutes, until very thick.  Place in greased bread pan, chill 2 hours.  Slice and prepare as desired.
