*I used nixtamalized corn to make polenta without a grinder or mortar and pestle. I followed the method posted at Mother Earth News.
I put the corn in my blender with water. I was able to blend the corn to a nice consistency maintaining a vortex (by drizzling in water) while blending for 3 minutes. This is similar in method to making Sue Gregg's blender pancakes from whole grains. I then added more water (could be broth) and salt and cooked it in a double boiler. This made a wonderful polenta with the nutty flavor that's mentioned in the article and has all the nutrients available.
I added farmer's cheese to the hot mush and served with sauce made from onions, ground beef, chili powder, garlic, and tomatoes over the top. I added a dollop of sour cream.
