Cooking Instructions for Cereal: Bring 3 cups water and 1/2 tsp salt to a boil. Add 1 cup Corn Grits and reduce heat. Cook slowly for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for a couple of minutes before serving. This will make enough for four generous helpings. Basic Italian Polenta: 6 cups water; about 1 tsp salt; 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Polenta; about 3 tbsp butter (optional). In a large deep pan over high heat, bring water and 1 tsp salt to a boil; gradually stir in polenta. Reduce heat and simmer gently, stirring frequently to prevent sticking, until mixture is very thick (about 30 minutes); use a long-handled spoon because mixture pops and bubbles and can burn. Stir in 3 Tbsp butter, if you wish, and add salt, if needed. Oil a deep medium-sized bowl. Spoon polenta into bowl and let set for 10 minutes. Invert onto a flat plate; mixture will unmold and hold shape of bowl. Cut polenta into thick slices and serve hot. Top with your favorite pasta sauce and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
