Basicly it's cornmeal boiled in water. But my recipie i do it differently. I make corn muffins then i crush them in a big bowl and put milk on it and warm it up in the microwave. I know that's gross but hey, In the CW, the Rebel soldiers had to put water on theirs. That's why it's called corn meal mush.
2 3/4 cups water
1 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup cold water
Bring 2 3/4 cups water to a boil in saucepan. Combine remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl. Gradually add cornmeal mixture to the boiling water, stirring constantly. Cook until the mixture thickens, stirring frequently. When thickened, cover, turn heat to lowest settings, and cook for 20 to 25 minutes. Pour into a small loaf pan. Cool then chill thoroughly in the refrigerator.
To unmold the cornmeal mush, loosen edges with a spatula. Turn out onto a cutting board. Cut into 1/2-inch slices, dip into extra cornmeal. Fry in a small amount of hot bacon drippings or a combination of oil and bacon drippings. Turn to brown both sides. Serve with butter and hot syrup. Delicious with bacon and eggs, too. Wrap unused cornmeal mush in plastic wrap and store in refrigerator
