About a month ago I really discovered Breakneck Acre Farm for myself, and I am recommending that you go there at least once to see it. They are open only Wednesdays from 1-6, but it is really close, and the owner Ami is most welcoming. It is one tiny building that has 2 beautiful handmade wooden machines from Austria. Those machines grind the corn that happens to make the best polenta that I have ever had, and I have had polenta in Italy! Casey had bought me the cornmeal, and I found out that the owner sells eggs at her farm as well. So that day she had eggs and wonderful fresh spinach. I had those little grape tomatoes at home, so for dinner we had scrambled eggs, sauteed spinach with roasted tomatoes, and polenta into which I added a cup! of parmesan cheese at the end. It was easy and delightful! I don’t have a real recipe for polenta, but this is what I do: Boil 4 cups of water and add a little salt to it. When the water comes to a boil, slowly but steadily whisk in 1 cup of cornmeal. Turn the heat way down and whisk for about 10 minutes until it gets pretty thick. Add 1 tbsp. of butter and a handful of grated romano or parmesan cheese. that’s it! Yummm!
I was able to go with Care to visit the store last week and enjoyed the conversation and looking to the mills. They are pretty cool. The polenta is to die for. I could eat it all day. I have to say I enjoy not only knowing the people behind the food we eat but being introduced to the layers of the eggs just makes it all the better.
I bought some polenta & goat cheese at the market yesterday. I thought I would try that instead pf parm cheese for a change. That will be dinner tomorrow! Looks tasty!
