    Pretty good recipe. Cooked once and the children really enjoyed it. The main thing is that this porridge is very useful.

    Very tasty porridge, I love to cook with milk. Previously, you had to stand at the stove for a long time, stirring so that it would not burn. But after she acquired the slow cooker, the time spent in the kitchen decreased by two. There is more free time.

  3. Hope

    The correct hominy is made from corn flour and not from cereals, I say this as a Moldavian :)! But in Russia, for example, there is no proper flour, I order myself from Moldova. And yet, in the multicooker it turns out something similar to hominy, but the correct one is prepared in a kazanchik. Try and feel the difference!
