Corn harvest and corn mush

  We recently finished harvesting our open-pollinated white corn.  The shucked ears are now drying in the corn cribs.  We've enjoyed incorporating cornmeal and grits into our everyday diet.  Corn mush has become a favorite breakfast food.  It's quick easy and delicious, similar in taste and texture to cream of wheat.  We cook ours in a ratio of one cup of cornmeal to two cups water and two cups of milk with some salt to taste.  Cook until thick, about 20 minutes.

always loved cream of wheat, now you're making you're own cream of corn meal - I'd eat it!
