Differences between cornmeals

digkv | Feb 11, 2007 09:40 PM

Well, I bought some cornmeal from Henry's supermarket and it appears to be a coarse, grainy meal. I have used it to make polenta, which cooked in like minutes so I assumed that it was quick cooking cornmeal or something. But now I want to fry okra and the recipe just says cornmeal, so is this coarse grainy cornmeal okay or should I be using corn flour or like finely ground cornmeal. Does anyone know the difference between all these types of cornmeal/polenta/grits?
