    Microwave Corn Meal Mush (easy to cook in the microwave)

  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 4 cups of water
  • salt to taste
  • Use a big enough bowl. I use a 2 quart Corningware dish. Otherwise, your meal will boil over! Cook on high for about 8 minutes. Remove and stir. Hot and ready to eat. Add extra water for thinner mush.

    Hot mush is great to eat on a cold dreary day! In my family mush is often fixed for a quick evening meal.

    Add a little butter and milk. Cold mush can be sliced and fried. Fried mush with syrup makes a delicious breakfast dish.
