   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           fine water-ground white cornmeal
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
    2 1/2  teaspoons     sugar
      1/2  cup           boiling water (about)
                         milk (to thin batter -- if necessary)
    3      tablespoons   vegetable shortening
 
 In a medium bowl, combine corn meal, salt and sugar. Add boiling water
 and toss with a fork just to mix. There should be enough water just to
 dampen the ingredients so that no dry particles
 
 show. Next, add enough milk to thin the batter to the consistency you
 like.
 
 Heat 2 tablespoons of shortening in a heavy griddle over medium heat
 until hot. Drop a heaping tablespoonful of batter onto the griddle,
 reduce heat, and brown slowly, about 5 to 10 minutes a side, depending
 on thickness, until crispy and brown. Repeat until batter is gone.
 
 Transfer to paper towel lined plate. Serve warm.
 
 Yield: 2 servings
