🍵Cornmeal Porridge

Just what's needed to begin an Island Fitness Retreats morning, fuel in the form of cornmeal porridge. A West Indian breakfast can be a lot of things, bake and saltfish, fry fish, combined with fresh fruit etc., but West Indians love a good hearty porridge. After drinking you really don't need anything else.

Recipe and method: 

Part milk & water with cinnamon stick on a low simmer
