Boil pork for 2.5 hours with the salt. Put a lid on, but not tight. Leave it slightly open. Add water as it boils down. Keep it about at the 3/4 mark in the pot. Take the meat out. Separate it into small chunks. Put the meat back into the boiling water. Don't put it all. Add the desired amount of meat. Add cornmeal to the boiling water a little bit at a time using a whisk to blend. Continue to add until the mixture is quite thick. Start using a mixer (but not in a Teflon pan). Mixture should be boiling while you mix. Again, use a non-stick pan. Eventually switch to stirring by hand because it will be so thick it will ruin the mixer. When the mixture cannot be stirred anymore (by hand), take it off the heat and put it into loaf pans. Refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours.
Take the loaves out of the pan and place on a cutting board. Slice thin (about a 1/4 inch) with an electric knife. Put 1/8 to 1/4 inch of oil in the bottom of the pan to keep pieces from burning. Keep adding as it gets low. Fry the mush until it's brown and crispy on each side. Serve with eggs (fried or scrambled). Some like syrup. Some like butter and salt. Some like jam. Enjoy!
