I was at the supermarket and by accident I came across Polenta, which is dried ground sweetcorn (maize). I initially thought it was couscous, which I eat by the bucket load, but was intrigued by a single warning on the back, which read,
“Warning. When cooking this product may boil volcanically.”
They should put that in big letters on the front of the packet! I would have bought it years ago if I’d seen a marketing campaign saying that.
I’ve just cooked some, and sure enough, it makes a right mess. Not surprisingly, it tastes like mashed sweetcorn, but the visual experience makes it must-buy product… 🙂
