Fresh Corn Makes Delicious Grits
Grits are commonly found in a box on the shelf of your local supermarket. And while the boxed grits are quick and easy to make, cooking up grits made from fresh corn are much, much tastier.
Since corn will only be in season for a few more weeks, I'm trying to buy as much as I possibly can before it disappears. Fresh corn is the best because it's sweet and has many of those important vitamins and minerals we all need. While frozen corn has those same vitamins and minerals, nothing compares to the flavor of fresh, right-off-the-ear corn. It's delicious in soups, tossed on top of salads or ground up into meal for muffins. But one of my favorite corn dishes is grits. Grated up and mixed with milk and butter, there's nothing tastier. You can enjoy the grits as a warm snack, or you can pile your favorite protein on top. No matter how you eat them, corn grits are absolutely out of this world... and oh, so much tastier (and healthier) than the box.
