easy polenta

We really like polenta around here but the making of it has been compared to making napalm.  Sticky hot burning stuff flying through the kitchen.  And then the pan!  It can be difficult to wash.  But I was on The Merry Gourmet blog and she mentioned making grits in the slow cooker.  I had to try it with polenta.  This is a snap.


1/2 cup polenta

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup hempmilk

1 cup heavy whipping cream


Find a heat proof container, like a pyrex bowl, that can sit in your slow cooker with room around it.  In that bowl, mix the polenta, salt, hempmilk, and cream.  Place in the slow cooker.

Pour water between the pyrex and slow cooker insert until it comes half way up the side of the pyrex dish.  Cook on low for eight hours or longer.

Server hot.  With a bit of butter if you wish.

When we make gluten free pizza, we find that our favorite crust is polenta so we actually have a polenta tart.  Making polenta this way really makes it much easier.
