Thanks! I was labouring under the impression that grits were like bacon bits! I noticed grits were usually mentioned in 'older' books - and those with themes in the rural areas. Anyone know a recipe to make grits? [Poby shakes her head in wonderment...]
you can buy grits in a store, usually in a canister. They are white granules bigger than salt.-- i have never heard of anyone grinding up their own grits, but im sure there are some hicks in the sticks that do somewhere-- lol basically though to cook them you just boil them up and I put butter in them and usually eat them with bacon strips or crumble up bacon to mix in with them. They are really good-- hmm-- i think i might go fix me up some now! LOl biscuits with cane syrup, grits, eggs, and bacon, yummy ymmmy yummy.
LOL, thanks - I'm sure they must be yummy, because so many characters in my books have been munching away on their grits and I was totally clueless! I'm trying to think if there is a South African equivalent to grits...
Hi, We don't have grits in britain. i have heard of them though. We usually eat cereal, toast or what is called a full english breakfast. Egg, bacon,sausage, tomatoe ,baked beans, mushrooms and fried bread.Yummy yum
LOL I am laughing at all of you in a good natured way! I live in Georgia. We are very familiar with grits! I like them with lots of butter. Sometimes we put cheese and bacon bits in them too. I'll have to take a picture next time we have them.
If you ever watch the movie "My Cousin Vinny," which is a really funny movie, BTW, it is set in Alabama and grits play a big part in saving the day. Do remember that we in the south are not the backwards hillbillies as portrayed on that movie, though! Well, not all of us, anyway! :-)
