Where can one purchase corn meal mush?

Dating ourselves here, but we remember when you could buy corn meal mush in the market (was KS and OH) in the 40's and 50's.....

For those of you too young to remember this--corn meal mush came in a loaf shape but only about 2-2 1/2" high.....it was fried in a skillet and served with Karo white syrup.

Corn meal mush is/was almost as good as pecan pie.

That was before my time and don't know where you can buy it but it looks easy enough to make. Here's a recipe...

It's like Polenta but it's not made with fat and cheese(except for when it's fried) It's kind of like cereal cake

Shari,

I remember it in the grocery stores in So Cal, it is not just a Ohio thing. If I were to guess, I would say a Southern thing. Alton Brown on the Food Network did a show on Grits and Polenta, explaining that they are basically the same.

Cook up some polenta or grits and place it a pan, cool, slice and grill.

Bill

Any box of corn meal will have the recipe for corn meal mush. I bet you pour it into a loaf pan to set, then slice and fry to your heart's content.

OBTW, Polenta (the Italian dish) is nothing more than corn meal mush - although it is often made with a coarser grind of corn meal.

yuk - corn meal mush - I mean that's what we ate when there was absolutely nothing else in the cubboard. It was only fed to the small children who couldn't defend themselves. Add a little pig fat and you have dog food. Good corn meal needs to be made into hot corn bread with fresh farm honey and butter. Now thats good.

Shari,

I know, it was a small joke which apparently did not work.

How about that - I lived in El Toro and then Mission Viejo - Worked for Bechtel out of Norwalk. This is mid 70's. Would take the kids to Dana's Point on Sunday - they played on the beach while I read the Sunday paper and we ate lox and bagels. Good times

David Alan,

Not to hijack this thread, but I am an Orange County, CA native and except for two years in San Diego, have lived my entire life in Orange County. Buena Park, San Clemente, Santa Ana and now Orange.

It's a small world...I lived in:

Akron Ohio '59-'64
Anaheim '64
El Toro from '64-'73 (grade school/jr hi)
Mission Viejo '73-'81 (jr hi/HS/college) I went to Dana Hills High School & graduated in '77...
Tustin '81-'93 (Adult)
Denver, CO '93-'05
Edgewater, CO Since 1-1-06

I believe the restaurant on the bluff is the Quiet Canon...it was one of my favorite "date-spots". Cool! We used to go to a neighborhood beach in San Clemente...Riviera.

Just to keep this on topic...I like mush or polenta whatever you wanna call it, especialy with green chile poured over it.

Shari
