  1. Bring water and salt to the boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Slowly pour in polenta, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until a smooth mixture forms. Lower heat and simmer, stirring frequently, for 20–25 minutes or until polenta comes away cleanly from sides of pan. Season to taste with pepper.
