Now reduce the heat so that the water is just simmering gently. Cook the polenta at this heat for at least half an hour, stirring continuously. If it becomes too firm, add a tiny bit of boiling water. Finally, add the butter. The finished polenta can now be used as a side dish. It is a classic dish, especially with venison pepper.
