Add One Cup Of Hominy To 4 Cups Of Boiling Water
Cook for ten minutes directly over the fire and then put into a double boiler. Cook for two hours, stir occasionally, very lightly. If hominy is soaked overnight, add it in the morning to the boiling water and cook for an hour. This may be eaten hot or cold, with milk, or with butter and sugar, or with syrup.
Fried Hominy - Cut cold boiled hominy into even slices and fry so that a crisp crust is formed on both sides.
Soak One Cup Of Samp Overnight
In the morning add four cups of boiling salted water (1 teaspoon salt). Boil until soft but not mushy. Pour off water, put in dish and place in warm oven for a few minutes to dry off. Plain boiled samp is usually used as a vegetable in place of potatoes.

1 tablespoon butter or melted drippings 1 cup milk
