- 1 cup cold water
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 3 cups boiling water

- A the remaining 3 cups of water to a pan and bring to the boil
- Mix in the cornmeal, bring to the boil
- Reduce the heat, stir in the cheese and simmer for 30 minutes or until it thickens, stirring often.
- Scoop the mixture into a greased loaf tin or suitable container and refrigerate for 4 hours before serving. A plastic Lock & Lock container is good for this.
