with the flour and sugar? what do us americans call polenta?[/quote:11pb0ery]The Italian version of cornmeal mush. Coarsely ground yellow cornmeal is cooked with stock or water and flavored with onions, garlic, and cheese. Polenta may be eaten fresh out of the pot, as a perfect accompaniment to stews. Polenta may also be poured into a greased pan and allowed to set. It is then sliced, sautéed, and topped with cheese or tomato sauce.

What Larry said. The "cornmeal" in the baking aisle is no more "polenta" than it is "grits." It either comes in a box or a 1 lb vac packed "brick" usually.

They always say on Food TV that you can subsitute corn meal for polenta....Man I just did a search about Polenta and being able to substitute Corn meal, it’s worse than the fat cap up or down debate……..

By calling corn meal "polenta" they can charge twice the price than that of cornmeal.
