American Indian Hopi Blue Corn Mush Savory Way Recipe
1 qt water
1 1/2 cup blue cornmeal
1 oil, for frying
Bring water to a boil in a saucepan, add salt to taste, and whisk in
the cornmeal. Lower the heat and stir the cornmeal for 10 minutes or
until it tastes done. The coarser the meal, the longer it will take.
Pour the cooked cereal onto a cookie sheet or into a bread pan and
set it aside to cool for an hour or so or until firm. Once it has
cooled, slice it into pieces for frying. Fry the slices in butter or
oil in a nonstick pan until lightly crisped on both sides. If this is
to be eaten as a savory, sprinkle a little red chili or paprika on
top just before serving.
This is cooked like cornmeal mush, molded in a bread pan, and then
sliced and fried. It is delicious with a clear corn flavor and odd
purple-blue color. It's good with eggs and bacon, or with butter.

Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst.

The problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Elevated consumption of animal-based products could lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a few authorities believe will increase the probability of heart conditions.

Lycopene super foods
(includes watermelon, red bell peppers & sweet gourd)
The nutrient lypcopene is a non-synthetic compound and part of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. It is the reason for the vivid red color of a good number of foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many other nutrients, lycopene is not damaged if it is cooked, but is observably increased in efficacy by being cooked.
Its key theraputic value is that it acts as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the probabilty of developing cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most effective quencher of singlet oxygen, which is connected with skin aging. It is also believed to slow down the growth of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
