In a heavy saucepan bring 3 cups of water, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to a boil. Carefully stir in the cornmeal mixture, making sure it does not lump.
Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally,for 12 to 15 minutes.
Serve pudding with a pat of butter ( Oh! go ahead LOTS,of butter) and the sweetener of your choice, or cream.
lots of butter, maple syrup in the middle..
I eat around the outer edge first, while dipping the spoon with pudding into the syrup.
My, my, that,s GOOOOD!
