She taught me how to make polenta, and I loved it. But, I hate standing over a stove and stirring. So, I found a better way (not more delicious, just easier). I'm not saying it is my invention, but I received tips from friends over the years and I don't know who to thank, so I'm just putting this out here.
Course Stone Ground for Polenta Fine Ground for Corn Bread & Muffins
Tip #2 - Use just a pinch of baking powder. How do you measure a pinch? My mom bought me measuring spoons that measure a pinch, a smidgen etc, but you don't need that. Simply pinch some baking powder between your fingers and there it is! A pinch!. I started doing this a few years ago and it really makes the polenta smooth and just the right consistency without all the stirring. I wish I could credit whoever it was who gave me this tip, but I have no idea who it was, sorry.
