Polenta is a versatile form of ground corn that originated in Northern Italy. In Italy, soft polenta is often a replacement for bread during a meal or instead of the pasta course, served with butter and cheese and possibly shaved truffles. Polenta is also served as a contorno (side dish) to regional dishes or eaten in cake form, layered with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and baked.
Another way to enjoy polenta is grilled and served with bruschetta-like toppings like mushrooms and tomatoes. And leftover polenta can be fried and covered in butter or cheese.
Your polenta will come in a bag made from 100% recycled paper, fully lined with NatureFlex*- a clear greaseproof film made from wood pulp. These bags are certified for industrial composting only. PLEASE RETURN THEM TO US so they can be properly composted. They will not break down in the landfill and cannot be recycled.
*NatureFlex Is made from natural, renewable wood pulp. It is both biodegradable and compostable. These bags are certified by the Composting Manufacturing Alliance, but please RETURN THEM TO US for composting as they are not accepted in Tacoma or other Pierce County municipal food waste bins. They WILL NOT break down in the landfill ( In fact, no bioplastics labeled biodegradable or compostable will break down in the landfill) We have partnered with Cedar Grove Composting facility where all our certified packaging can be industrially composted.
