Plan: Mine, all mine
BF:still got some
Just to add a little life, I'll post my RP friendly recipe.
My intention was to make a more stick-to -your- ribs version of Atole which is a Mexican warm drink made from milk and corn meal/masa.
I would like to find an organic, bulk masa but so far am using organic cornmeal.
For each serving;
1 cup milk
1 T masa
a little salt
vanilla and sweetener to taste
Whisk while heating til thick.
To this basic recipe I added an egg which I beat separately and tempered before whisking in.
It turned out to be more like porridge which I ate out of a bowl with a bit of butter.....basically, it turned out like a stove top custard with cornmeal texture.
I cooked it very slowly so the meal was quite soft.
I added just a little sweetener and vanilla and it was too sweet. I am not a fan of sweetened hot cereals and would probably add less/none in the future.
BUT this turned out delicious and I will add it to my breakfast list (which is pretty short).
My next cooking experiment is to come up with a spoon bread like my mom made. It, too, is not sweet but like a baked cornmeal custard....the custard was thicker on the top if I remember correctly.
I'll check out the local co op for a good quality masa.
Hope you are all well and having a great holiday season.
Oh, I almost forgot; I added 1 tsp gelatin at the beginning w the cornmeal and cold milk.
