Tip for removing skin from sausage: If you have difficulty removing the skin from the sausage, blanch for a short while in lukewarm water and the skin will come away easily.

Boil the diluted milk with the salt and butter. Mix the flour and the grits and plunge them into the boiling diluted milk. Allow to simmer for approx. 10 minutes, stirring continuously, then remove from the stove.

Peel and dice the potatoes. Skin and dice the salami. Stir both of these ingredients and the sultanas into the hominy mixture.
