    Grits

    Does anyone know where I can get old fashioned grits? The only thing stores seem to carry now are the instant or semi-instant. They just don't taste the same as the old fashioned ones that take FOREVER to cook. Kroger, Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Walmart, etc. only carry Quaker or store brand instant/semi-instant.

    I've found multiple places online, but I'd like to have a local shop that I can get them from. I will try the farmers market!

    Edit: I could just order a large shipment, enough for the entire year. Does anyone agree with me that old fashioned tastes much better than any instant grits?

    You're the first person I've ever heard of doing a taste test on grits. Personally I can't imagine instant being able to taste worse than regular. I'm just sayin'.

    It's all in the seasonings.

    Salt, pepper, butter, jam, brown sugar, the list goes on.

    Once you've fine tuned your grits taste, move on to the advanced southern foods. Put some tomato pudding on top of a bowl of black eyes peas and bar the door!

    Maybe a natural foods store. And don't forget the shrimp.

    Alex, it's a southern thang.

    I'll never forget the first time I ate grits. It was my first breakfast in the Army. I thought they were Cream of Wheat so I added a little sugar and milk. Haven't been able to swallow them since.

    Do you have Bob's Red Mill brand in your region?

    http://www.bobsredmill.com/corn-grits_polenta.html

    There is usually a whole section of BRM products, usually in the baking area. They make specialty grains and flours, bran, etc. You could try asking about this brand. BRM probably has several types of grits.

    "What is a grit?" I was up at about 4AM this morning and that was on .... great flick.

    Bob's Red Mill ships a lot of places, if you can find those you've got the real thing.

    And I have to second the shrimp ..... with garlic and cheese. Great stuff.

    I like them with over easy eggs. Break the yoke and soak it up with the grits. Now ya got a breakfast to stick with ya till lunch. Top it off with some biscuits and gravy, good hot black coffee, make ya wanna slap yo momma.

    Actually I just had two eggs and grits with some rye toast and coffee for breakfast this morning. Very satisfying.
