Cherokee Tribal Food Distribution Program



Course Breakfast
Servings 4


  • 3 cup milk whole or skim
  • cup farina (or cream of wheat)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 sticks cinnamon
  • cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter salted
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg freshly-grated


  • In a medium-sized saucepan combine milk, cream of wheat, salt, vanilla, cinnamon sticks, 2 cups of water, and half the sugar. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Heat over medium heat stirring constantly to prevent it from sticking to the pot. When it breaks the boil, add butter and lower the heat to very low. Simmer stirring until it reaches the desired consistency, taking into consideration it will get much thicker when it cools down. I suggest a thick but still liquid consistency.
  • Remove from the heat and pour into individual servings, and sprinkle with the nutmeg.
  • Serve warm.
