eMoyeni, Belmont Farm

We often have calls on how to cook our products.  Our plan to print a recipe book has turned into a web page.  Following are some recipes that you can use with our products.  The eMoyeni Yellow Mealie Meal can also be used in place of polenta.

Yellow Mealie Meal Porridge

For 2 to 3 people: Put 1 cup mealie meal into a jug, and fill with cold water.  Stir until well mixed.  Leave to stand and then pour water out, leaving only the mealie meal in the bottom of the jug.
