I was surprised the other day when talking to a girlfriend who is a good cook. She admitted that she doesn't make good grits. I was like...how can you make a good pot of gumbo and not know how to make good grits?
I'm still puzzled. LOL!
As I was making grits this morning I read the instructions on the box and thought...hmmmmm. If someone followed these instructions their grits wouldn't be like mine. LOL!
I use the old fashioned grits. Why? No reason other than I just buy the kind my mother used to buy and I'm a creature of habit.
Bring instructed amount of water to boil adding a pat of butter for each serving. Sprinkle a bit of salt in the pot. When the water is boiling, using a whisk...WHISK grits into boiling water. Continue whisking for about a minute. Turn the pot down to low and put top on. Set timer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, whisk quickly. Put the top back on it and set the timer for 5 additional minutes. Remove from heat and whisk one mo gin. Season to taste.
VOILA! Creamy grits that are mmmmmmmmmm...mmmmmmmmmmm...GOOD! I DOUBLE DOG TRIPLE DARE you to mess up grits if you follow these directions.
