Ingredients

  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Water
  • Corn meal

Directions

Boil cornmeal and make a thick mush, like oatmeal. Season with a little salt. We used to eat it this way but when there was some left wed let it cool over night.
Next day, slice the mush into pieces and fry in oil in a pan.
Use the same way you would use frybread.

Note: You can add berries, bits of meat or anything else you like to the mush before it cools. Adds taste.
