First time cooking polenta last night. For a first time, it wasn’t great, but I learned a lot!
I over salted! eek. I tasted with a spoon midway, and it was very bland, so I added more sea salt. After adding 2 oz of Parmesan Reggiano cheese, I mixed, then instead of using a separate metal spoon to taste, I tasted remnants on the wooden spoon before I stuck it in the sink.
It tasted bland still, so I added more salt.
I know better for next time! But the cheese tasted yummy, and so did the polenta, even though it was too salty!
