Ground corn with the nutritious parts removed.  Cooked a little thinner than polenta (cornmeal dish) the Italians make.  Have you ever had Cream of Wheat?  Something like that.

Most southerners I know like grits with butter and salt at breakfast alongside eggs and bacon.  My father eats his grits with butter and sugar like Kitkatz.  But really, I hope Twirl will weigh in on this...

We ignore the fact that they are grits, add a little half and half and sweetner, then cover them with honey or syrup... they're edible like that.

Beef tripe is usually made from only the first three chambers of a cow's stomach: the rumen (blanket/flat/smooth tripe), the reticulum (honeycomb and pocket tripe), and the omasum (book/bible/leaf tripe). Abomasum (reed) tripe is seen much less frequently, owing to its glandular tissue content. Tripe is also produced from sheep, goats, pigs, and deer.  :puke;

Tripe is cow (or bull) stomach.  Must be washed carefully before cooking.  In Jamaica they boil it until tender then coat it in bread crumbs and fry it.  I eat it in Chinese Dim Sum restaurants here.  They stew it down with green onions and bits of hot pepper and it is really tender and delicious.  Most importantly, it's not deep fried so the calorie count is good too.  I love it and chicken feet too.  The chicken feet are stewed in a red barbeque type sauce.

I like the taste of ALL foods (an omnivore I call myself) so you might not want to go by what I say, but I miss my regular Dim Sum feasts which I now avoid because of salt.

I think I've already written about my distaste for tripe elsewhere in the pages if IHD  :puke;

Perhaps I will someday come across some that is prepared as Monrein has described and I will try again.  For now though, I put it in the same category as insect larvae.  :puke;

Gimme grits with cheese any day!  :cheer:

Insect larvae???  Hmm, and how would we be preparing those?  Deep fried for crunch perhaps?  How much phosphorus I wonder?   :rofl;

Aggie applies to anyone who attands a college that started as an A&M college, (Agriculture and Mining)  Many Western States started two state land grant colleges, an arts and sciences school and an A&M school.  The A&M schools were seen as more rural and the students were classified as lower social status and therefore "Dumb"

Red eye gravy is pan drippings, coffee,and sugar.  It's often served with Ham. I don't like it.  I prefer a good country sausage gravy.  with Bicuits.

I've only had them steamed.  I think they would be better deep fried.  :rofl;

Actually after I thought about it today, I decided they were roasted.  I thought I told the bug (insect larvae, actually) eating story before.  I ate them in Korea as a sign of friendship and respect of my Korean friend.  He grew up right after the Korean War and was very, very poor, but today is a college professor.  They ate bugs when he was growing up because they often had nothing else.  Now it is considered a very special food.  They were mushy and tasted like hay.  I don't think I'll ever eat them again.

I did not  :puke; , but I thought about it.

I don't think you will get any request for the recipe :clap;
would be interesting to have it on what I ate for supper
did you only have to respect him by eating one
or did you have more respect for him
what followed the bug
or was that the main course
