grits [Cooking]

Oct 18
Ever since Dragonlady introduced me to grits this summer, I can't get enough. I'll have them for breakfast or dinner, with eggs or shrimp, fried tomatoes or anything else.

Grits are made of Hominy corn, and are white in colour. This is not the same ground yellow corn you make polenta from. It has a subtly different flavour.

Cooking it a bit in bacon fat makes the kitchen smell like popping corn, which is when I know to add the water.

The problem is that I've only been able to find it at one place in town so far: Herb & Spice on Wellington. The only brand I've found is Bob's Red Mill. It's very good, but I'd like to have another source for when this store inevitably stops carrying the one thing I buy there.

I was fortunate many years ago to eat them at Crooks's Corners.
