  1. Step 1

    In a heavy-bottomed soup pot, bring the cooking liquid to a boil. Slowly whisk in the polenta and lower heat to a very low simmer.
  2. Step 2

    Cook for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon. The polenta should bubble thickly like molten lava during this time. If the polenta starts to clump up, add water (about 1/2 cup at a time) to thin it out.
  3. Step 3

    Stir in butter. The final consistency should be thick and creamy but not clumpy. Adjust consistency with additional water if necessary.
  4. Step 4

    Season to taste with kosher salt and serve right away.
