Jamaican ‘Tun Cornmeal’
Posted By Sarina On October 6, 2012 @ 10:24 am In dairy,gluten free,sides,vegetarian | Comments Disabled
Cornmeal based dishes are common fare in the Caribbean. Although their popularity is often challenged by rice and wheat-based compositions many are turning back to them for the added beneﬁt that they are naturally gluten-free. ‘Tun Cornmeal’ is a rich polenta-like Jamaican recipe, which transforms into the similar themed ‘Coo-coo’ the further East one travels in the Caribbean.
Traditionally, my mother has not been a fan of this dish, however she positively adores my version. The recipe for which I share in my ebook “Glam By Request: 30+ Easy Caribbean Recipes”  (details below). I believe that butter and seasoning are key for the ﬁnal result, as is an untiring arm to ensure that the outcome is a base that is smooth, creamy and light, rather than coarse and dense. I do hope you try my recipe . Let me know how it turns out!
