This recipe gives you the basic cooking steps for making southern style grits, which were voted the official prepared food of Georgia in 2002.


Grits are bits of ground corn or hominy which constitute a uniquely indigenous Southern food first produced by Native Americans many centuries ago.  Corn is a preeminent Georgia crop grown throughout the state. Grits can be a pure and simple breakfast dish or can be incorporated into gourmet cooking through countless recipes.
