I think it's one of those things with which you absolutely have to be raised. It's very, VERY southeastern United States -- corn hominy with salt and peppar and cheese.

It's sort of solid! It's not liquidy, at least....

When properly cooked, it inhabits a strange netherworld between gelantinous and gloopy.

They are quite tasty, shorty! But the instant kind are to be avoided.

Got excited and saw ice cream, now very disapointed :)

YUM!! I love grits. Been ages since I've had them though.

It's *checks clock* 9:30 in the morning! A bit early for ice cream, Steve. *grin* Maybe after lunch.

kostika -- the cafeteria downstairs has a wide array of badly cooked breakfast foods. Grits are my hope and my salvation. Otherwise, if I didn't eat, I'd be all kinds of cranky. You should find some and feast!

I'm not sure the UK carries grits. It might be something to have a look for though.

I know there's a store here in Orlando that caters to our ex-pat UK population.... I wonder if there's something similar there.

Who knew? Grits have their own website! And you can order online....

W00T! Now to convince the hubby this is something edible.

I thought grits were made from potato. like disk things.

onceupon says:

Matt -- nope! Grits are made from various bits of corn -- there are a couple of different kinds. Flat disks made from potatos? Sounds like potato chips or latkes (potato pancakes) to me.

kostika -- TOTALLY edible!

kostika says:

Oh I know they're edible. I grew up eating them. (gradnparents were from the South) Convincing the brit husband of such is another story. :o)

My father (a transplanted New Englander) never could get his head around grits as food. Boiled peanuts on the other hand....
