Basic Grits

Grits are a southern tradition. My Mama loved grits. She is the one who told me grits were also known as Georgia Ice Cream. Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think.

I also from time to time add fried, crumbled bacon to mine. And at other times I add alittle shredded cheddar cheese to them also. OOOHH so good.

Basic Grits

4 cups water

2 tablespoons butter

Salt to taste

1/4 teaspoon pepper (black or white)

1 cup grits ( not instant )

Bring the water, butter, and salt to a boil. Gradually add the grits, return to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook the grits, stirring occasionally so that that they do not stick or form a skin, until they are creamy and done to your liking. It takes about 25 minutes, but many people like to cook them much longer. If you do, you may have to add more water. Serves 4.

Hope ya’ll enjoy this recipe.

See ya’ll soon.
