Grits and polenta are one and the same: we make them from high-quality dried corn that has been ground to produce coarse grits that will absorb water, broth or milk to become creamy and delicious—just like the grits you’ll find in South Carolina.
Native Americans offered the first settlers bowls of Rockahominie, a dish consisting of ground up corn grain cooked to creamy texture. It is believed this corn mixture kept many of the settlers alive during those cold winters.
Grits may be eaten covered in gravy, cheese or butter and salt; or served with seafood, meats or vegetables. They also make a delightful breakfast when served as a hot cereal. You can also use these coarsely ground grits to make polenta. Similar to pasta, cooked polenta is delicious topped with marinara sauce, shredded cheese, or grilled or roasted vegetables.
While these aren’t instant grits, they cook up in just five minutes. Following a gluten free diet? Explore our Gluten Free Corn Grits/Polenta, made from yellow corn.
