Recipe by BrindleGirlD

I ate this as a treat with my best friend After School. It is called Funche, a Puerto Rican polenta mush. It is Sooo Good,it's warm,creamy and a bit sweet.I Use Harina de maiz mas fina(A very fine cornmeal, Goya makes it)) so its smooth not grainy.I have been searching for quite sometime but in wrong places, not thinking it was like mush but sweet :o(. I found a similar version of this on hope you enjoy it as much as I have. I also add sugar with the cornmeal so it dissolves, but that is a personal taste as to the amount of sweetness.

Yummy! Just made some for breakfast using dry polenta. Very creamy. I topped it off with some Steen's Pure Cane Syrup and a pat of butter. Will definitely make again.
