Cascade Ruby Gold Polenta
Produced at home in our own stone mill, this is a coarsely ground version of the same ‘Cascade Ruby Gold corn as our corn meal. Carol Deppe, the breeder, provided this quick, simple alternative to the classic stir-all-day recipe: Bring 6 c water to a boil. Stir in 2 c polenta, add salt and 1 T butter or oil (optional). Stir for 7 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 40 min. Stir a bit (add some cheese or roasted vegetables before stirring if you’re really feeling decadent), and it’s ready to eat, Or transfer to a baking dish, and put in refrigerator until solid. Then reheat in microwave or oven or skillet, and serve topped with your favorite pasta sauce or gravy. Certified Organic. Grown by Harcombe Farm near Albany.
