Toasted Cornmeal Porridge


1. 2 cups ablemamu (finely ground, roasted corn)

2. 3-1/2 cups milk, hot

3. 8 teaspoons brown sugar, or more, according to taste


1 To make the ablemamu, dry-roast

2-1/2 cups ordinary popcorn kernels.

Remove from the heat just before the popcorn begins to pop, then cool and grind until powdery and fine in a spice or coffee grinder.

Cool overnight.

2 Place the ablemamu in 4 cereal bowls. In each bowl, pour in a portion of the hot milk and add some of the Sugar.

Stir to mix thoroughly. It will thicken and swell to form a typical Tom Brown porridge. Sit back, smell it, tuck in, and...enjoy.!
