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.
