Maple Morning Polenta

This recipe is out of "Family Feasts for $75 a Week," a cookbook I pull off the shelf often.  It is a nice alternative to oatmeal or cream of wheat if you want a hot breakfast.  The recipe makes a lot, but does reheat well.

3 cups cold water
1 1/2 cups milk
2 cups cornmeal
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup pancake syrup, plus more for serving
2 Tbl butter

Combine water, milk, cornmeal, and salt in a pot, stirring briskly to combine.  Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture begins to boil, about 10 minutes.  Reduce heat to low.  Cook 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is thick.

Remove from heat.  Stir in syrup and butter.  Ladle into bowls.  Serve with extra syrup and raisins.
