How do you eat your grits?
« on: December 19, 2016, 06:33:15 PM »
   My wife got up and fixed us breakfast today and I noticed as we ate and got to thinking about different ways people eat their grits. I just put a pat of butter on the plate, covered it with grits till melted then stirred and ate mine. Becky added butter to hers then crumbled her bacon up into small pieces and mixed with her grits. I have seen people mix their grits with over easy eggs and stir everything up and eat them that way. Others mix hard scrambled eggs with their grits. Becky's aunt was raised in Alabama and should know better but she has spent so much time up in Northern Ohio she now adds sugar to hers - definitely not a traditional southern way to eat grits. When we have cheese grits with a fish fry I don't add anything else. Occasionally my wife will take cold grits, slice them into squares, dip in eggs then flour and fry them.

   How do you eat your grits?

I usually eat grits with fried eggs or soft boiled eggs.  Either way, I add the butter to the grits while they're cooking.  With fried eggs, I put the grits and eggs side by side, and with boiled eggs, I add the eggs to a bowl of grits.

   I think the results will show they are good with anything. Adding something to them is like icing a cake, adding ice cream to a slice of pie, or adding your favorite spice, sauce or dressing to you other favorite dishes.

My grandpa ate a bowl of grits for breakfast everyday without exception. I'm not everyday but probably 90% of my days start with a big bowl of grits thin and runny swimming in loads of butter and sugar.  8)

Usually eat 'em  with lots of butter and Tony"s Cajun seasoning.  Also cheese grits or cheese grits and shrimp.  Not really a bad way to eat grits.  Momma used to make what we called cold fried grits.  Take the leftover grits from breakfast, or make a batch just for this, and spread them out in a flat pan about half an inch thick.  Let them set up then cut into squares and fry them in bacon grease.  Yummy.  Haven't had that in a long time.  May have to make some this next week.

WLC,

   You did not learn to eat grits like that in Alaska. Fess up - where did you develop so much culture.

    My wife has a niece there in Wasilla who spent several years in Alabama. May she has been giving cooking classes.

Good ole southern boy here, just transplanted to the frozen north about 11 years ago.  Called Georgia home the first 40 years of my life and learnt all my bad habits there. :D

It's be funny if I knew your niece, We actually live just outside of Wasilla.

ETA: We actually get grits, REAL grits, sent up here from my mom and dad.  There is a water turned grist mill near where I grew up that has been in continuous operation since 1876.  They make good grits on those old grind stones.

   I would not be surprised. I met a boy in northern Mongolia who had been my daughter's patient in Charlotte NC. Niece's name in Kimberly (Kimmie) and married to Chad. They have 2 boys. Let me know if you run into them.

For those who HATE grits, there's hope!  My mom was from south GA (& despised grits), while dad was from OH (& loved them).  As a kid growing up, I didn't like them at all.

It was only when I was older that I discovered the joy of stone ground yellow corn grits.  They've got a great corn flavor, and are not smooth yucky sticky library paste in texture.  They're coarse enough to give you some "chunkiness".

I buy mine from Nora Mill Granary out of Helen GA ( http://www.noramill.com/ ).  I buy them in 10-20# batches, and vacuum pack & freeze them for use here at home.

My basic recipe (from mom) is 3 cups boiling water, salt to taste (~1/2 tsp to start), a tablespoon of butter, a cup of yellow grits.  When the grits are almost done (after 15-20 minutes), throw in a handful of shredded cheddar cheese & stir.  Top with black pepper, and eat.  My entire family likes them this way.

DO NOT (as I did) hate grits based on store-bought corn meal type grits.  Yucky tasteless pasty garbage.

Cruffler,

   That sounds very much like the grits I grew up with. My mentor (like an adopted grandfather when I was a kid and young man) took his corn to mill and had it ground. He'd separate his meal from his grits and even his fine grits from the coarse ones. We'd eat them with fish and game along with hushpuppies and vegetables he grew in his garden. You are definitely right about the home ground grits having a lot more flavor than the store bought ones. Then again, I always thought yellow corn had more flavor that white corn anyway whether meal, grits, hominy or corn chips. May be my imagination but my imagination says yellow has more taste than white.

I think the yellow grits DO have more corn flavor than the white ones.  I've tried Nora Mill's white grits, and they don't taste as good as the yellow grits.

We had sweet corn left over in the garden this year so I dried a bunch upstairs in the barn and when it was dried,twisted the kernels off and grind up what we need as we need it.
I've cooked it up as grits and liked it a lot and regularly make corn pancakes served with butter and cane syrup.I eat them most every weekend for breakfast.

It also makes a great cornbread(no flour) which is good with chili or stew.

So a few pics of the process. I wanted to ask if these would be considered corn grits or is there another name?

Paul,

   I'd say yes. The only difference between grits and corn meal is how fine it is ground. Both are made from grinding dried corn.

    I have seen Himba women in Namibia make them using a flat rock and a round river rock as a mortar and pestle. They cooked them in 1 quart/liter pots shaped like our old washpots over a fire made of the cobs. I think in Africa they are called "mealies". A lot more fiber in theirs than ours. I remember buying dry corn in the local markets in Cameroon and having a local miller grind them for me. Tasted pretty much like what I was used to at home.

Paul,

   I have eaten them on 5 continents so far. If/When I get to Australia I may have to see how they taste with Vegemite. I don't know if I could get the water to boil long enough in Antarctica to cook them there if I ever get there. It is refreshing to see you neighbors to the north making and enjoying them. :D

   The cornbread does look good. I have 2 confessions though - #1. I actually like to add a little sugar in my cornbread mix. #2. I am married to a mean woman. Ever since she found I prefer the corners of the cornbread she has made it in a round pan just for spite.

Good Cornbread has to be made in a black iron skillet.

I bet that your homemade grits taste much better and more "corny" than the store bought ones.

You got me stinking oh I mean thinking
When we make maple syrup dumplings we cook the dough in maple syrup.
Would it be possible to do the same with corn bread dough, and what would it taste like?
I've got to do some more thinking on that.

P.S. Anyone have a good cornbread recipe?  I've got some syrup and my wife is pretty good at helping me get rid of the evidence.

I like my grits with everything and any way I can get them. Even with green eggs and ham Sam I am.   

My wife likes it best when I mix them in with scrambled eggs and deer sausage and any kind of Cajun seasoning, she calls it a breakfast bowl.  My favorite way is mixed with two eggs sunny side up next to deer sausage and toast for heming it all up

Grits are good. I don't often make them at home, but I look forward to traveling south, and having someone else make them for me. Makes them more special when I don't have them all the time. I'm /just/ outside the grit belt, so I don't have to travel far. Salt/pepper/butter is all they need.

Chuck,

   They should have already been properly salted during the cooking process but it is okay to add a little more if you like. I never add pepper but nothing wrong with that. The gob of butter is the proper additive! You have that down pat!

That French toast doesn't looks good, but they're going to have to cook that egg. Not sure why they want to charge extra for all that extra stuff, grits by themselves provide plenty of traction on ice just the way they are.

So there is more than one way to eat grits? I never knew :D...butter, salt and pepper, and whatever else that "leaks" from the surroundings (sirup, jam, bacon fat). (And BTW - yellow grits instead of white, though this is disputed in my family.)

  I'm with you on the yellow vs white grits being better. I am the same with corn meal or tortilla chips. Yellow has more flavor.

   BTW - where do you find them in Norway? I worked a project in Kristiansand for 2 years and never saw any there. I finally found oatmeal but it was over in the baking area instead of the cereal section.

I am not surprised, but they do have Rommegrot and I find that much better (apologies to my friends of the southern persuasion). Can't get that stateside and I miss it a lot. It's been too long.
