Coarsely ground corn, traditionally a breakfast cereal. YUMMY!!! Though grits have a rich tradition in the South, they are not only eaten by Southerners. People around the country are finding the great uses and taste of grits. Turner Catledge, former editor of the New York Times, called grits "the first truly American food." Grits date as far back as 1607, when the colonists came ashore at Jamestown, Virginia. Grits are a good source of calcium and iron and have no fat or cholesterol.
Grits are made from the milling of corn kernels. The first step in the process is to clean the kernels; then, the grains are steamed for a short time to loosen the tough outer hull. The grain kernel is split, which removes the hull and germ, leaving the broken endosperm. Heavy steel rollers break up the endosperm into granules, which are separated by a screening process. The large-size granules are the grits; the smaller ones become cornmeal and corn flour. The word grits comes from the Old English. "grytt", for "bran", but the Old English "greot" also meant something ground.
There's nothing better than a bowl of grits for breakfast; it's comfort food and fills you up with warmth. Whether they're the instant, just-add-boiling water version from supermarket shelves or the new fashion in chic cuisine, grits have been a part of American meals for 400 years, and they don't appear to be leaving the table anytime soon.

Vinny Gambini: How could it take you 5 minutes to cook your grits when it takes the entire grit-eating world 20 minutes?

Mr. Tipton: Um...I'm a fast cook, I guess.

Vinny Gambini: You're a fast cook? Are we to believe that boiling water soaks into a grit faster in your kitchen than any place on the face of the earth?

Mr. Tipton: I don't know.

Vinny Gambini: Perhaps the laws of physics cease to exist on your stove! Were these magic grits? Did you buy them from the same guy who sold Jack his beanstalk beans?

In the 1980s, in the Mid Atlantic region of the United States, grits was the term used to describe the metalheads that were also obsessed with cars. "Grits" because they were usually dirty with motor oil and dirt (grit) from lying on the ground under cars. Mullets were optional, but commmon. Usually they wore black t-shirts with heavy metal band logos, jeans torn at the knees, and high-top sneakers, half unlaced with the tongue over the cuff of the jeans -- jeans were often tucked into the sneakers. A bandana tied around one leg or in a back pocket was a standard accessory.

A flannel shirt or jacket was also part of the dress. The jacket was faded blue or black denim. Band names/logos/patches/pins were pretty much a requirement.
"Oh, man, I hate this mall. The parking lot outside the food court is always loaded with Grits."
