1Fry sausage until browned. In large pot, bring 1/2 c. water to boil. Meantime in bowl mix cornmeal, salt,sage, cayenne pepper and cold water. Stir constantly while pouring into boiling water. Cook for 15-20 mins. When done stir in sausage.
2Place in plastic wrap lined bread pan to make a loaf to slice or into jelly roll pan to cut into rectangles; chill until firm. Slice, dredge through flour and fry in oil.until browned on both sides.
3I like to serve with warm homemade applesauce or maple syrup. Also good with fruit jam smeared on top.
