Is there anything more Southern than grits? We serve up steaming pots of grits with butter, cheese, salt, sugar, tomato gravy, shrimp – you name it. Corn, one of our most bountiful crops, has always had starring role on Southern tables. Grits are a classic recipe that actually originated from porridge made with cornmeal by the Native Americans. From the mortar and pestle all the way to the table, Test Kitchen Director Robby Melvin is exploring the history of this buttery staple and showing how Southern Living makes a perfect pot of grits.
