- 4 cups water
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 cups yellow cornmeal
- In a 10 inch skillet, bring water and salt to a full, roiling boil.
- Slowly add cornmeal, stirring constantly with wire whisk--mixture will get very thick. With spatula, smooth top.
- Turn heat very low and cook, uncovered without stirring, until thick crust forms around the edge and mixture is firm--about 20 minutes.
