My husband and brother love this. They want it fried in butter with a little oil and eat it as fried bread. In case the mush doesn't get firm, I fry it as pancakes. I never use flour and have never had to use a double boiler. Thanks for posting. There is a recipe for cornmeal mush on the back of Quaker cornmeal which also works well.


  1. Mix cold water and corn meal.
  2. Stir into boiling water and salt.
  3. Cook, stirring, until it boils; cover and cook over boiling water in double boiler 30 minutes or cook on slow fire, uncovered.
  4. Pack into greased metal can or mold.
  5. Cover with plastic and chill overnight or until firm.
  6. Slice 1/2 inch thick and brown in skillet.
  7. Serve with butter and syrup.
