Creamy Polenta with Parmesan Recipe

  • 4 cups water (salted)
  • 1 ¼ cup yellow organic cornmeal (medium or coarsely ground)
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (freshly grated)
  • ½ cup half and half (room temperature)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  1. Boil salted water in a large saucepan. Slowly whisk cornmeal into water until it is thoroughly incorporated. Reduce heat to low and stir frequently until the cornmeal starts to thicken and bubble, approximately 20 – 25 minutes.
  2. Remove pan from heat and stir in cheese, half & half, and butter. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Willow started couponing in 2007 to save their family some money on the grocery budget. That's how Freetail Therapy was born, so that fae could share their knowledge of saving money with others. Though the site has become so much more since then, and now includes homeschooling and homesteading info, Willow still does it all on a budget and shares how. Willow enjoys snagging freebies, snuggling with their dog, Xander, drinking decaf coffee, gardening, cannabis and of course, their large frugal family.
