    From The Italian Slow Cooker. You could add in grated cheese or herbs to the finished polenta for more flavor if desired. You could also use half broth and half water when cooking.

      Stir together the cornmeal, salt, and water in a slow cooker. Cove and cook on high for 2 hours. Stir the polenta. If it seems too thick, add in a little water, milk, broth, or cream. Cook for 30 to 60 minutes more, until thick and creamy.

      I am currently cooking this mixture in my slow cooker. It has been cooking on High for over 2 hours. Stirring as per directions did nothing but produce a thin yellow soup. I have cooked slow cooker polenta before, and used a different recipe which required 6 to 8 hours to cook, on Low, 3-4 Hours on High. I had my doubts about the "Basic Polenta" recipe when I read that it took only 2 1/2 - 3 hours to cook. I'm not a happy camper. It is 8 p.m. No polenta. P.S. - I found the other recipe. It calls for BOILING liquid, 6 Cups to 2 Cups of cornmeal, slow cook on Low for 6 -8 Hours, on High for 3-4 Hours. I added another 1/2 C. of cornmeal to the already cooking, now boiling hot, polenta mixture in my slow cooker and stirred it in well. The mixture had already been cooking on High for 4 Hours and was still relatively soupy. Hopefully, adding additional cornmeal will correct the recipe enough to produce a decent polenta in another hour or two. "Basic Polenta" recipe needs to be corrected.
