=== 🍽🍸🥩 RECIPE ===
32 ounces (1 liter) chicken or vegetable stock
8 ounces (170 g) Yellow Corn Meal
1 tablespoon Butter
2 ounces (60 ml) Half & Half

Bring 24 ounces (700 ml) of stock to a boil. Combine remaining 8 ounces (240 ml) stock and cornmeal into a slurry. Slowly combine the cornmeal mixture into the boiling stock, whisking constantly.
