Grits

Grits is a porridge made from corn (maize) that is ground into a coarse meal and then boiled. Hominy grits is a type of grits made from hominy, corn that has been treated with an alkali in a process called nixtamalization with the cereal germ removed. Grits is often served with other flavorings as a breakfast dish, usually savory. The dish originated in the Southern United States but now is available nationwide, and is popular as the dinner entrée shrimp and grits, served primarily in the Southern United States. Grits should not be confused with boiled ground corn, which makes "hasty pudding" or "mush" or may be made into polenta using coarse ground corn, or with the "mush" made from more finely ground corn meal.

I've heard this song for years but never really listened to the lyrics. About becoming a better person and not losing faith. Good song.

Here is a really good grits recipe I made this morning. I added a 1/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese, and topped wit a soft fried egg. Don't forget to add the grits in SLOWLY, while whisking, to avoid lumps. And fill the pan with hot water after serving, or else it will be a pain to clean. Enjoy!
