Personal Notes:
This is always a special treat. Although you can eat it hot, best refrigerated and eaten the next day.
slice thin, dredge in flour with salt and pepper, and fry in oil/butter until crispy on the outside, creamy inside. Great served with maple syrup or butter.

Nowadays, you can buy it already made as polenta. Served as a side dish. We always ate it for breakfast.

Grandma Ferris believes the recipe came from Grandma Marie Ferris.
