Oh, what a difference...
One of my dear readers, Sue from New York, e-mailed me a while ago and asked if she could bring me anything, as she was on her way to Sweden soon. I jumped at the chance to get my hands on some stone-ground cornmeal, and very very generously she gave me three packets - two yellow, and one blue! (Can't wait to try that one!!) I have to say, what a huge difference from the polenta I've been baking with! First of all, this actually smells like corn. Fresh, sweet corn! Delicious! And it's much finer ground.
I baked the same recipe as I had before with it, and it was so incredibly yummy! Not that it wasn't good before, but this was better. It made a much more tender cornbread, fluffier and lighter, and with much more flavor. I loved it!
