  • This really is a great cornmeal mush recipe, I made it and while cooling on the kitchen table my son asked what it was , I told him and he sorta shrugged and walked away. The next morning I took it out of the fridge and fried some up, the cinnamon is what gets the senses flowin, my son ask to try some and loved it! This is a great recipe for mush!!

  • This is a great fried mush recipe!!!.... Well worth trying

  • When my Mom made this when we were kids, she always fried it in Bacon grease and served it with eggs and fried potatoes, a tall glass of cold milk and toast. You will feel good for most of the day.

  • You must be Pennsylvania Dutch or have a source of their cooking. My ma used to make this but used a tin to refrigerate. She used a large can like tomatoes come in. In the morning I got to cut the bottom of the tin out and push out the mush and slice it. Thanks for stirring a pleasant memory. I'm going to try it.
