Miss Sattie

Check out post # 9 in this thread. Look in your grocery store in the hot cerel section. Oatmeal, Cream of Wheat, etc. Leave the "instant' stuff on the shelf!!

Oh Puh-leeze. Don't make "grits" yet another high fahlootin thing.

I buy plain stone-ground cornmeal all the time & use it for breakfast & savory grit dishes with nothing but accolades.

If you're going to be snobby about it Uncle Bob, at least agree that whatever snobbery you're suggesting isn't necessary in order to enjoy grits. Good grief.

Snobbery..SNOBBERY????

Please don't confuse snobbery with facts.

Cornmeal is NOT grits!
Grits is NOT cornmeal!
Cousins but NOT the same!

Plain and Simple Facts...No Snobbery intended!

Oh for heavens' sake Uncle Bob - lighten up & get down off your high horse!!

I've been making "GRITS", "CORNMEAL MUSH", & "POLENTA" from the same artisinal stone-ground corn meal for over 30 years.

Where, exactly, do you get off suddenly telling me that what I've been cooking, enjoying, & serving for all these years aren't "grits".

Please - give me a break.

So based on your (mis)information I can buy a box of Commercially packaged grits (or locally stone ground grits) and make cornbread? That "lightens" me up for sure!

Have a pleasant evening madam and my warmest regards!

EEK! To your corners Breezy and Uncle Bob!

I really don't think there was any snobbery intended here, Uncle Bob is famous for his tongue in cheek writing style.
