Thanks Karol, think I'll give grits a miss - I almost think our grit (mix of sand & salt spread on icy roads) would taste better  :rofl;

Grits are ground up corn kernels, I think, I have never had any. Grits are similar to other thick maize-based porridges from around the world such as polenta. It also has a resemblance to farina, a thinner porridge.

Close Karol, but unlike polenta they grind up only the white starchy part of the corn.  No husk and no germ.  White as snow and pure starch.  This is why you need salt and butter, or cheese, or even milk and sugar.  Without those additions the flavor is very bland!

But, it's important for me to point out that I LIKE THEM!  Just as I like noodles and rice and potatoes and dumplings (oh yes, especially dumplings) and spaetzle and cous cous.
