Grits is a porridge made from boiled cornmeal. Hominy grits are a type of
grits made from hominy – corn that has been treated with an alkali in a
process called nixtamalization with the pericarp removed
The dish came from a Native American Muskogee tribe's recipe in the 16th
century, of Indian corn similar to hominy or maize. The Muskogee would grind
the corn in a stone mill, giving it a “gritty” texture. They were made
using a stone-grounder. The colonists and settlers enjoyed the new staple
with the local Native Americans and it became an American staple dish
