1 cup Yellow Cornmeal (coarse or fine)
4 cups Water
¼ cup Half and Half (or Milk)
½ cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 tbsp. Sugar
¼ tsp. Nutmeg (ground)
Vanilla Flavoring (2 drops)
Bring the 4 cups of water to boil in a saucepan. Turn the heat to medium.
Slowly pour the water and cornmeal into the saucepan while stirring with a fork. You will have to stir the mix continuously for about 3 minutes. Make figure eight patterns if you like; this will stop the cornmeal from forming lumps. Be careful from this point on.
The porridge will splash and burn your hand if the heat is too high. Turn the fire down even more if the splashes from the pot become large. Cover the pot and let simmer for about twenty minutes. Occasionally stiring the mixture in the pot.
Turn off the fire but do not remove the pot from the stove. Now add all the ingredients, except the nutmeg. Stir to sweeten this porridge and then taste it. Add more ingredients of your choice to get the desired taste. Serve in small soup bowls and sprinkle with ground nutmeg.
Number of Servings: 4
