4 cups cold water
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
Pour one cup of cold water into medium saucepan. Add all the cornmeal and salt and cook over high heat. Stir continually.
Bring to a boil and slowly add three cups boiling water. This will prevent lumps from forming.
Reduce heat, cover saucepan and simmer for about eight minutes until thick.
Continue to stir frequently throughout.
Serve as is or with butter,
sugar or syrup.
