about Grits Edit
Wikipedia Article About grits on Wikipedia
Grits is a type of maize porridge and a food common in the southern United States, east Africa (where it is called ugali in Swahili) and southern Manchuria (where it is called gezi in Chinese) consisting of coarsely ground corn, traditionally by a stone mill. The results are passed through screens, with the finer part being cornmeal, and the coarser being grits. many communities in the south had a gristmill until the mid-20th century, with families bringing their own corn to be ground, and the miller retaining a portion of the corn for his fee. Grits aficionados still prefer stone ground grits, although modern milling tends to prefer faster methods.
