You should try it with pap then, it's just white polenta. We cook it to a firm consistancy (so that you can make bite size balls with your fingers to dip into the tomato and onion relish!)
How we do it:
Bring half a pot of water to the boil (cast iron pot with lid if you have one), add 1 good tsp of salt, slowly whisk in the corn meal until it becomes like a thick porridge. Make a well in the center, fill the hole with boiling water and cover with lid. Reduce heat to lowest setting. Let it steam like this for 30 mins then mix the water in the center into the rest of the pap. Allow to cook for 30mins more. Add a good dollop of butter. When the pap is cooked it will smell like corn, if not cook longer.
Serve with the relish and Skilpadtjies (afrikaans for turtles) we call them skilpadtjies because the liver covered in caul looks like a turtle shell when cooked.
P.S I've eaten faggots, love them!
