Cornmeal porridge is considered a healthy and nutritious meal among Jamaicans. Amazing when served with bread or water crackers.
¼ cup Milk
½ cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 tbsp. Sugar
¼ tsp. Nutmeg (ground)
4 cups Water
1 cup Yellow Cornmeal (coarse or fine)
2 drops Vanilla Flavouring
¼ tsp. Cinnamon (ground)
Add cornmeal to a bowl, and then pour enough water into the bowl to cover the cornmeal.
Use a fork to mix the cornmeal in the bowl to let the water and cornmeal mix loose and watery.
Put the 4 cups of water to boil in a saucepan. Turn the heat to medium.
Slowly pour the water and cornmeal into the saucepan while stirring with a fork.
Stir the mix continuously for about 3 minutes. Ensure flames not too high as the porridge will splash and burn your hand if the heat is too high.
Turn the fire down even more if the splashes from the pot become large.
Cover the pot and let simmer for about twenty minutes. Occasionally stirring the mixture in the pot.
Turn off the fire but do not remove the pot from the stove. Now add all the ingredients, except the nutmeg.
Stir to sweeten porridge.
Serve in small soup bowls and sprinkle with ground nutmeg.
BONUS: Add more ingredients of your choice to get the desired taste.
