    They are coursely ground corn. That will serve till the Chief corrects me. :)

    You boil them in water till you get a creamy consistency, apply a liberal amount of BUTTER and salt and pepper. On occasion cheese is added as well.

    Some of us cheat and do them in the micro.

    Grits are like cream of wheat but corn rather than wheat.

    Good with cheese or scrimp among other ways. Mostly with butter.

    Grits are a waste of corn that could be used much better to get pigs and cattle ready to put real food on the table like steaks and chops!!!!sign1

    LOL corn makes chops, ribs and steaks! Whiskey too!

    Sorry guys but I got fed cold lumpy oatmeal for breakfast 6 for months while staying with a farm family while I was 16. Don't eat "hot" cereals anymore!

    Morning all, taking grandsons to preschool this morning. Going to try to finish the tear out on one room this afternoon.

    Have a great day all!

    My introduction to grits was mess hall #5 at Keesler AFB in Mississippi. During the year I was stationed there, I saw oatmeal exactly once. The rest of the year, it was grits and SOS, two things I came to loathe. And watching some guy kill a rat as it ran across the serving line didn't help my appetite one bit. :curse:
