I’M A CHEF AND I’M SERIOUS ABOUT MY GRITS
Grits is a food made by boiling ground Corn, and usually served with other flavorings as a breakfast dish, usually savory. It is popular in the Southern United States. Grits is of Native American origin, and is similar to other thick corn-based porridges from around the world such as polenta. YES..I L-O-V-E Grits….I have been eating them since I was knee high to a grasshopper….My Grandmother Annie Mae who is southern as southern can be made THEE most amazing grits…AH-MAZE-ZING. She didn’t buy the grits that takes 5 minutes, the quick grits. She purchased the ones that takes 30-40 minutes to cook. I used to watch them and ask “Are they done yet? Are they done yet?” Until I got banned from the kitchen. I then stood outside the kitchen asking “Are they done yet”…LOL (memories), Although my Grandma is no longer alive my love for grits continues on. No Grandma I didn’t follow your tradition of slow cooked grits. I’m still impatient and choose the quick grits that take 5 minutes. Every time I see the slow cook grits I think of you and smile…….
