Have you tried buying foodstuff online?? like southern grits? look up Pigglywiggly website..

Now that would take all the fun out of food sea.    When I have to go 2-3 years without my favorite food, when I get it is a Hallelujah moment.------I went 6 years without getting a Maine Lobster, when I finally got one I was in a point of Ecstasy, I even sucked out the meat in the legs.

Soon as I hit NC I dragged Hubby to a small shop for a real pulled pork sandwich with Cole slaw on top and green hot sauce.  Hubby was not at all impressed, first time he ever had one but I was zoning out on the taste.  Now if I could have made this anytime I wished at home, this would have become same oh, and not a oh great experience.

Tacos made Tex Mex  corn taco cooked in lard, just hamburger, tomato , lettuce and very sharp cheese.    The freaking grease runs down the chin, no spices.      Darn  my kingdom for a couple dozen.

LOVE grits!!! I stock up whenever I go down South!  That and Duke's mayo except now they sell that up here  :yahoo:

Had a friend from Ohio that used to come down to visit. His wife would throw away stuff to make room for a couple of cases of Duke's Mayo going back.

As a kid I liked to chop up my sausage/ham/bacon, eggs and mix it all up together in my grits.....of course that was with a lot of salt, pepper and butter. Damn good with a few of momma's hot bisquits and a glass of cold whole milk.

As a kid ? Hell I do that now.

I used to fill up a separate shopping cart with Dukes (and grits and a few other things, like this gullah crab seasoning from the Piggly Wiggly in Beaufort, SC that's freaking great!).  Once in awhile, I'd get an odd look but I'm sure they're used to us Yankees buying all their good stuff 'cuz we can't get it up here!

When we used to go to Cincinnati every month or so, there were a couple of stores I would hit, for Italian stuff. Also would stop at Graeter's Ice Cream and pick up 6 pints of different kinds & they would pack in dry ice for me to bring home! Most incredible ice cream ever!  :drool:

Up here we have them with real maple syrup. Real! Not Aunt Jamima's!  I make it myself in the spring. Of course you can put it on anything and it will make it good. i guess you southerners use hot sauce for that?
 
"Liberalism is an essentially feminine, submissive world view. Perhaps a better adjective than feminine is infantile. It is the world view of men who do not have the moral toughness, the spiritual strength to stand up and do single combat with life, who cannot adjust to the reality that the world is not a huge, pink-and-blue, padded nursery in which the lions lie down with the lambs and everyone lives happily ever after."

**** all y'all grits haters!!  :loser: :bigbird: If they're prepared properly, they're very good!! I cook mine a little thick, add in salt, pepper, butter (liberal amounts) and then add in raw eggs while the grits are still cooking. One has to be quick at stirring in the eggs or the eggs will cook. Left over grits can be formed into patties & fried or add in a little more water and simply reheat them! Sausage & other breakfast meats can also be added.

Nobody in this thread said they "hated" grits. That was a word that you and Johnny Reb brought to the table. At one point I did agree that haters were gonna hate, but that could've referenced anything.  :whistling: 

Wineslob said something about compost pile (to which I fully concur) and someone else said something about mouse turds.

Ain't no hate there. Just perspective.  :-)

Hot sauce in the grits.

I use real maple syrup in sauce for ham.  :drool:  And on waffles. (hmmm...those might be good for dinner tonight!)

Anyone notice a recurring theme? Having to put enough crap in Grits to make it "edible".   :fuelfire:

I think that whoever it was who came up with the term "grits" was definitely into chicken-scratching. And we all know what the hens are scratching for, don't we?

And eggs. And pepper. And sausage. And hot sauce. And whatever else goes in the mix in addition to that "corn on the cob" that comes in a cardboard cylinder.

I dunno. I generally make a serving for two or three & add in a couple of raw eggs. When I do that, I let the grits come back to a low boil or just cover them and let them sit for a minute or two. The residual heat kills any bad bacteria. You GOTTA be quick about stirring them in or they'll cook in the grits. If that happens, you won't get then smooth texture that one should have. When all is said & done, you'll have a combination of grits, eggs, butter, salt & pepper.  :yum:

Grits (not the soupy stuff restaurants serve), 2 eggs, over easy bleeding butter, fresh-fried crispy bacon broken in to small bits, all mixed together with extra butter, and a tall cold glass of real (not store-bought) milk...  Breakfast of the Gods ! ! ! :drool:

No.  I'm joining Wineslob's and Eupher's camp on this.  I had some given to me on a trip to North Carolina several years ago.  I was quite underwhelmed and just took the one bite. 

As for Polenta, yuck.  Some years ago, it tried to get all fashionable with the cooking shows and gourmet magazines crowing and swooning over it.  Nice restaurants tried to make it sound sooo impressive and haute.  It's cornmeal mush, depression food, and I hate it.

BTW, what is it with Duke's mayo?  This is not the first time I've heard about this.  Mayo is a very simple thing.  What makes it so much better than, say, Hellman's?
