Trinigourmet Q&A #10: Can I Use Polenta in place of Cornmeal?


Reader’s Question: Anyone used polenta (in Trinidad Corn Soup with Dumplings) instead of cornmeal? Former more common in Europe, but both made from corn.

TriniGourmet’s Answer:

Polenta grade cornmeal can be a good bit coarser. I would suggest grinding it more finely in a blender or food processor, but after that is done it can be used in place of cornmeal 🙂 Best Wishes!
