How to Cook Grits

Howdy friends....

There are plenty of variations but here's how we cook Carolina Grits.

Classic Carolina Grits
(serves 3-4)

Combine in a Pot:
1 cup Carolina Grits + 3 cups of water + a pinch of salt.
Bring to a boil.
Stir & Lower to a slow simmer, cover and cook for 30-35 minutes.
Stir it every 5 minutes or so. Keep it covered.
Grits can sometimes stick to the bottom of the pot.

Notes:  Wait to add butter or cheese until the very end.
If grits get too thick -- stir in a little hot water or broth to thin.  

Variations are limitless.
But here are a couple of ideas:
1.  For an extra savory touch, substitute chicken or veggie stock for some of the water.
2.  For a rich and creamy twist, use 2 cups water and 1 cup milk or cream.
