Growing up In Jamaica we used to turn cornmeal and they used to call it poor people food so what’s you saying about my Scotch Bonnet Coconut Polenta. Polenta is made from coarsely ground cornmeal and is very popular in Jamaica,Italy ect.Polenta is similar to grits, but as for me I think polenta is way better than the famous Southern dish. It can be served creamy, fried, baked, chilled and cut into cubes. I really love creamy coconut polenta, it is a special dish.
