It's funny, I was raise in Texas and my mother never cook grits. When I married, my husband folks who lived in New Orleans ate them just with butter.So when I started cooking them I had to add a little some some to them "some taste".
Grits has been a part of the life of every Southern of whatever race, background, gender, and income; and whereas, grits could very well play a vital role in the future of not only in the south , but also the world,
Grits are usually either yellow or white, depending on the color of corn. The most commonly version found in supermarkets is "quick" grits in which the germ and hull have been removed, so grits can cook fast and quick.if not if will take 30 minute to cook.
