A real breakfast of southern champions.
Here are today’s five thing to know about Grits:
- Grits (also sometimes called sofkee or sofkey from the Muskogee word) are a food of Native American origin common in the Southern United States and mainly eaten at breakfast.
- They consist of coarsely ground corn, or sometimes alkali-treated corn (hominy).
- Grits are similar to other thick maize-based porridges from around the world, such as polenta, or the thinner farina.
- Grits are usually prepared by adding one part grits to two-to-three parts boiling water, sometimes seasoned with salt or sugar.
- They are usually cooked for 5–10 minutes for “quick” grits or 20 or more minutes for whole kernel grits, or until the water is absorbed and the grits become a porridge-like consistency.
