Polenta is a porridge made from a specific type of cornmeal derived from Italian corn and is a staple in Italian cooking. Since it is derived from corn, polenta is gluten free. This fine polenta yields a creamy mixture and is often paired with a stew or braised meat or sweetened for desserts.
Polenta porridge is traditionally made by mixing polenta into boiling water and whisking constantly for about 30-45 minutes. Use 4 parts water/stock/liquid for every 1 part polenta. Adding a fat such as butter or olive oil gives polenta a rich flavour. Plain polenta can be quite bland, so season well. To make an even more flavourful savoury polenta, use broth instead of water. Use polenta to make something sweet by using milk and sweetener.
