Fried Cornmeal Mush

When I was a kid, my mom use to make this for us on cold winter mornings. It was a great breakfast and a good way to start the day.

FRIED CORNMEAL MUSH

1 cup cornmeal
1 cup cold water
3 cups boiling water
1 teaspoon salt

Grease loaf pan. Mix cornmeal and cold water in saucepan. Stir in boiling water and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Cover, cook over low heat 10 minutes. Spoon into loaf pan. Cover, and chill at least 12 hours. Cut into slices and fry in butter, until it starts to brown. Top with sugar or syrup.
