Cornmeal Mush Fri, 11/4/05 2:34 PM (permalink)
I know...I am revealing my humble roots with this one. But it was and remains a favorite in our family.

Bob Evans used to have it on their menu. They took it off, but as of my last visit about a year ago, the cook would make it if requested.

Other'n that, folks, you're on your own.

I like lots of butter and syrup on mine. And I poke holes in it with a fork so that the butter and syrup can soak each piece. Too yummy!

        I have never done the corn meal mush. I looked the recipe on the internet and it is not difficult. I wish to try it. I will let it rest in the refrig and fry it as indicated.

          One of the first things I learned to make onmy own, and surprisingly, still love it.

            Great stuff. A little more work overall than pancakes from a mix, but MUCH easier for a Morning Zombie like myself, since all you have to do is slice it and fry it. You did the hard work last night, while you were still lucid.

              They sell this in grocery stores around central Indiana. It comes in a roll like sausage, I forget who makes it. I love the stuff! Have you tried scrappel? Same stuff with some bacon added.

                  Not like any Penna Dutch scrapple I ever had! Altough I think scrapple does use corn meal as a binder..

                          Tiki, give it a try my man. Polenta fried dark brown in a little bacon grease or lard, topped with a sprinkle of chile powder and syrup.... mmmmm, meatless scrapple.

                            Is it Yoder's? That's the brand I see most in the Cincinnati region.

                              ...Okra Fungi (cornmeal mush with okra)...

                              They don't have this in Jamaica but it sounds intriguing.
                              What's added to it i.e. salt, pepper, hot sauce, etc.???

                                  When I was working at the food mart, we used to handle Clearfield's Mush, which came in a rectangular block similar to the Velveeta package that is inside the 2 lb. Velveeta box. I tried using Google to see if it still might be available, but nothing comes up, so I guess they are out of business.

                                      Yes sir, fried crisp and eaten with butter and Karo dark syrup. Yes, I am Pennsylvania Dutch (German American) and I also eat scrapple, but such things are very hard to find out here in the West!

                                      Mush is one of the easiest things to make - just follow the instructions on most corn meal packages, pour the cooked corn meal into some sort of a mold (a glass pyrex bowl works fine), let cool, refrigerate overnight, and slice thin and flour before frying.

                                        After checking around, I see some Jaxon's Mush in a roll in some of our stores (central Illinois). After checking Google, Jaxon's is a small company in Dayton, Ohio.
