Another old Southern Indiana recipe.

2 tbsp butter

Scald 4 cups of the milk and place in a double boiler.  Add the cornmeal and cook for 20 minutes.  Mix molasses, ginger, salt, and butter; add to the cornmeal-milk mixture.  Pour mixture into a baking dish.  Pour remaining milk over the pudding.  Bake in a 325 degree oven for 3 to 4 hours.  Serve with whipped cream, hard sauce, or vanilla ice cream if you want.
