Step 1

Heat the water and milk in a large saucepan or pot until boiling. Once boiling slowly pour the polenta into the hot liquid whilst whisking to avoid any lumps. Constantly stir the polenta until it starts to thicken then turn the heat down to low.

Step 2

Cook the polenta on a low heat for at least 30 minutes or until it starts to come away from the edge of the pot, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon (different brands and how fine or coarse the polenta is will make a difference in cooking times but generally 30 minutes is enough time for medium ground cornmeal).

Step 3

Add the butter, parmesan (or cheese of choice), salt and pepper to taste and stir until melted and combined.

Step 4

Serve immediately or pour into a baking dish to cool.
