    Many people feel that grits are made from ground up bits of white corn. This is obviously a lie. Nothing as good as a Grit can be made from corn. The most recent research available suggests two distinct possibilities:
    # 1. The mysterious Manna that God rained down upon the Israelites during their time in the Sinai Desert was Grits.
    # 2. That Grits are formed deep underground under intense heat and pressure and that it takes over 1000 years to form a single Grit and that most of the world's grit mines are in Southern Georgia and are guarded day and night by armed guards and fierce attack dogs. icon_wink.gif

    There was a vat of it in the cafeteria next to the oatmeal...

    tried it...couldn't really tell the difference between grits and oatmeal, other than the feeling I should be either whittlin or fiddlin while eating it

    I happen to love Grits!

    1. Grit cakes made w/ fresh herbs and butter formed into small cakes and served w/ a meaty fish like grouper topped w/ a vegetable ragout (YUM)

    2.My ex fiancee who is Greek/Romanian also grew up eating grits which happen to be yellow and she would mix Romanian feta cheese and grape tomatoes..(YUM)

    Probably eat them 2-3 times a week. HUGE grits lover. Of course, being from Georgia/Alabama pretty much means that's a given.

    My favorite? Shrimp and Grits. Divine.

    My favorite restaurant in town has the best: Meet "Grits a Ya Ya".

    ugh, i ate grits once by accident- i'd just gotten out to cincinnati for my freshman year of college, from my home in Maryland, and mistook the vat of grits in the food court for cream of wheat (which i LOVE). i THOUGHT it looked a bit watery and lumpy- and my first mouthful of it confirmed that, as no cream of wheat could possibly have such an awesomely awful, slimy texture and bland taste, it must be something alien and evil.

    I love grits. It must be an acquired taste thing. It's great to have in the morning with some berries or with honey.

    You are entirely correct about one thing. Yankees have attempted to create a synthetic Grit. They call them Cream of Wheat. As far as I can tell the key ingredients of Cream of Wheat are Elmer's Glue and styrofoam. These synthetic grits have also been shown to leave you unable to have children. icon_eek.gif
