When we sold our homestead, I had a 5 lb. package of grits. I stored it in an airtight glass jar.
I saw grits mentioned here and thought that grits would be great for breakfast.
So I got them out to fix them and they are so good!
What are grits? You asked:
Grits are known as a quintessential dish in Southern cuisine that has gone from a humble breakfast or side dish to the base for a tasty shrimp entree featured on restaurant menus. Grits actually have a much longer history; the word "grits" refers to any coarsely ground grain and was eaten by the Native Americans. Today, grits are made with either hominy or stone-ground corn and are boiled and then usually combined with butter and milk.
