Foodimentary - National Food Holidays

Here are today’s five thing to know about Grits:

  1. 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.
  2. They consist of coarsely ground corn, or sometimes alkali-treated corn (hominy).
  3. Grits are similar to other thick maize-based porridges from around the world, such as polenta, or the thinner farina.
  4. Grits are usually prepared by adding one part grits to two-to-three parts boiling water, sometimes seasoned with salt or sugar.
  5. 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.
