Recipe Thursday-Cornmeal Mush

Posted on September 23rd, 2010 | Posted in Recipes, Seasonal Products, Side Dish

It is officially Fall and Cornmeal Mush is now available for purchase from Hometown Provisions.  I also decided that I would try to make this staple Lancaster County dish.  I remember having mush when I was on a class trip to New Bedford, PA and we were eating a Quaker inspired meal. It didn’t leave a very good impression on me, but after making this very simple side dish last night, my taste buds must have matured from 15 years ago, I am now a fan!  Below is the simple Amish Cornmeal Mush recipe as well as the product information for our premade cornmeal mush.  I served the mush with scrambled eggs and bacon and then I had it for dessert, topped with syrup.  Also you can serve it similar to cream of wheat, right out of the sauce pan with milk or just browned butter.

Homemade Amish Cornmeal Mush

Yield 8-10 Servings


3 cups water
1 cup cornmeal (NOT1920)
1 teaspoon salt (CQS030)


Mix all ingredients together in a medium sauce pan.  Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 10-20 minutes.  Pour into a loaf pan, cool in refrigerator and cut into thin slices.  Fry till golden brown on both sides.  I personally fried up some bacon, to season the pan, prior to frying the mush.
