I was looking for a cornmeal mush recipe when I came across this recipe. I did some things a little differently but kept it basically the same. It is a great old fashioned recipe perfect for the coming fall months. If you have a wood stove, then cook this on top and slowly cook it while your house fills with the delicious smells of sweet cornmeal pudding.



This has a BOLD flavor to it. It doesn't taste anything like your bland, sugary store bought desserts. If you want a treat with great old fashioned taste to it, this is for you! Serve it up warm with some good vanilla ice cream or whipped cream oozing over the top.



Overall a nice, easy recipe. I liked the taste, too!
