I love cornmeal porridge. I think it’s a West Indian thing. It’s the first food they give to babies except it’s made very thin with milk and a touch of sugar so they can be fed through their bottle. They usually give them as the meal before sleep because it was believed it made them sleep through the night. Ours is usually sweet just like Cream of Wheat. Now that I live in the US it is the best on a cold winter day.
