Cornmeal porridge is a staple for us, especially when we are working physically hard in the mornings.
1.5 cups finely ground cornmeal
3 cups water
1 cup ashwater
1 tablespoon whey or yoghurt
pinch sea salt
2 more cups water
1 - 2 tbspbutter
4 tsp honey or rapadura
2 cups fresh seasonal fruit
1 litre yoghurt, kefir etc
Place the corn meal in a bowl and add water. Give it a stir and you will see that the husks are floating. Scoop them off with a sieve and tip off all the excess water. Add the ash water, salt and whey. Leave to soak overnight.
In the morning put 2 cups of water into a pot and add the cornmeal mixture. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes, stirring often.
Place a lid on top of the pot and leave for 20minutes before eating. This is very important as the digestability of the grain changes a lot during this sitting time -you'll notice a big difference.
At this stage stir the butter into the porridge. Serve with honey, fresh fruit and yoghurt.
