Nearly fill the iron pot with water, throw in three table tablespoonsful of salt; when boiling, throw in by degrees some Indian meal,—the quantity depends on the quality; on an average, if the water is soft, one pound to every two quarts; that would be four pounds. When well stirred, remove the husk with a spoon, which floats on the top. Then throw in one pound of strong cheese, broken in pieces, or grated. Boil for twenty minutes, and serve. Or, put it on a greasy baking-tin, throw some more cheese on the top, put in the oven for twenty minutes, and serve. Or, allow it to get cold, cut in pieces, and fry.
