What is grits???

  • Chuckpartak Karenpartak

grits...white corn (hominy) that has been soaked in lye to remove the outer layer and causes the kernel to swell. ground to tiny sand grain sized particles , this is then boiled in salted water to a thick pasty consistency and served warm usually with butter and salt and pepper or add cheese,bacon bits ,etc. Southern breakfast dish staple. Go to any good authentic southern restaurant and order breakfast,it usually automatically is on the order.
