PIEDMONT CORN MEAL MUSH

3½ cups boiling water,
1 teaspoon salt,
1 cup fine corn meal.

Add meal to boiling salted water by sifting it slowly through the fingers, while stirring rapidly with the other hand. Boil for ten minutes, and cook over hot water for two hours. Serve hot as a cereal. Or pour into one-pound baking powder boxes to cool; fry in deep fat. Serve either for breakfast, or as an accompaniment to roast pork, or, with syrup, for dessert.
