Come watch her prepare a wonderful dish, and of course taste it! 5-6pm on the stage in Mower's Field.
Here the recipe that Holly prepared in the market:
Maple Polenta Pudding with Strawberries and Cream
Cooks Notes: For this dish, I recommend Wild Hive fine or medium cornmeal, or a fine ground polenta. This can sometimes be called cornmeal on the package.
For the Pudding:
1 Cup cornmeal *
3 C water (or follow package directions if not wild hive)
1/8 teaspoon salt
5 heaping tablespoons of butter *
1/4 C maple syrup *
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine water, cornmeal and salt together in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Stirring constantly, lower to a simmer and keep stirring. If you notice that it's getting dry and the water is absorbed quickly, add a bit more water. Stir for about 10 minutes. Add butter, vanilla and maple syrup and stir to incorporate. Taste it. It should be soft and creamy with a buttery mapley flavor. You can add more of anything to adjust it to the way you like it. Serve with fresh fruit and whipped cream. YUM!
When I make whipped cream, I pour in a splash of maple syrup to sweeten. Taste and add more if you like. Enjoy!
* Ingredient available in the farmers' market
