Sweet Indian Corn Pudding
- 6 cups water
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups very coarse grits
- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar (more to taste)
- Bring water to boil in large saucepan. Stir in salt and grits, stirring until it comes to a boil. Turn heat to low, cook very gently for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Be sure to stir across the bottom of the pot to keep from sticking.
- Remove from heat and allow to stand for about a half hour or until the grits are tender. Stir in milk and sugar.
- OPTIONAL: For a more deluxe version, use cream in place of milk and add spices to taste such as cinnamon,nutmeg, mace, cloves or ginger. You can also add in 1/2 cup of currants or raisins.
