In a medium pan over high heat, bring milk and water to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Stirring constantly, pour in polenta in a thin, steady stream, breaking up any lumps that form. Stir in 2 tablespoons sugar and salt. Simmer, stirring often, until polenta is soft and creamy, about 30 minutes.
In a small bowl, mix crème fraîche and 1 tablespoon sugar.
Ladle polenta into bowls, and top with about 1 tablespoon of jam and a dollop of sweetened crème fraîche.
For the crème fraîche...
Try sweetening it with a tablespoon of honey or, if you prefer, don't sweeten it at all!
