You will literally smell the "corn" as you stir up these delicious grits. The creamy taste and texture are winning over grits fans (and not so grits fans) - left and right. And, what makes these grits even better? Our yellow grits are kosher and certified organic. Package may vary from image. DIRECTIONS: Bring 4 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of salt to a rapid boil. Stir in 1 cup of yellow grits. Reduce heat, cover and let cook for 20-25 minutes until creamy. Stir occasionally. Add butter, pepper and additional salt as desired. Short on time? Pour ingredients into a crock pot, cook on low overnight and wake up to creamy, hot grits. What a great way to start the day. Note: it is common for grits to stick to the sides. Simply scrape and stir well. No lumps in these grits, folks. Additional Stir-In Ingredients: Bacon crumbles, cut up link sausage or crumbled sausage patties, ham, extra cheese, scrambled eggs. Eating a hearty breakfast never tasted so good.
