Is it ok to eat your grits with butter and Sugar?

If you use sugar, you ain't from the South.

Grits are NOT cream of wheat or oatmeal.

Now, granted milk and/or cream adds sugar to the grits. But to blatantly add sugar to regular grits is ungodly.

How long does it take you to cook your grits?


The grits I use ... 25-30 minutes.

I have used grits where I had to separate the grits from the chaff. They came directly from a grist mill in Pickens County.

Ding, ding, ding, ding!!!!! I was just playing. Of course. In the whole grit cooking world, no one cooks their grits in five minutes. :)

If you don't stir grits while slowly pouring them in boiling water for the first few minutes, they will surely get clumps in them, and you may as well throw them out and start over. Continuous stirring when first put in a pot of boiling water is a must bc once they clump up, it's almost impossible to get the clumps out, so just pour them out, and start over!!!

No less than an hour to take the gritty feeling out. Cook on low heat with 1 half stick of butter or margarine, prefer butter myself. Keep covered and stir about every 5 minutes, if grits start to get too thick, sprinkle in a little water and stir to thin them, but cook no less than an hour!!!

Butter and salt preferred, but brown gravy is not bad.

Of course it’s ok. 60 some odd years ago that’s how I was introduced to “Georgia ice cream”. As I matured I came to understand that to fully enjoy the experience grits and fried “cackleberries” they had to be cooked for at least 30 minutes with butter, salt and pepper. Got a pot on the stove right now. If you want to get adventurous add some garlic,red chillies and cheese!

Lake Side yellow grits are my favorite.

Salt, pepper, cheese (especially cheese), bacon/bacon grease, milk, cayenne pepper, even some garlic powder (mostly for fried grit cakes)....all acceptable. No sugar.

In the days after my rotator cuff surgery I was thankful to have had the foresight to buy some instant grits. I had previously, of course, always turned my nose down at the thought of instant. Turned out that instant grits aren't all that bad. The instant oatmeal I bought was awful!

BTW my ancestors are from the Old Pendleton District.

Vinny. I added the sugar from the OP. I have used instant grits and nothing is wrong with them.

If your grits need sugar, buy better grits.

If you are southerner, butter only. If you are a yankee, sugar and any other thing you can put on it to screw up good grits!!!!

Also, Grits should be cooked no less than an hour on low heat with a half stick of butter, add just a sprinkle of water if it starts to get too thick!!!!

I agree with the cook time part, but if you haven’t tried them with cheese (extra sharp) I think you are missing out.

Then there are the *^%$ Yankees who move down here, put sugar on grits, then tell US we have been doing it wrong.

That's pretty much what they do with everything.

My wife is from Texas, 50 years ago when she moved to S.C. she ordered grits for breakfast at a Waffle House. She had never had them and her dad made her eat them. Her only choice was to add sugar to them . She did eventually moved to Sweet and Low . So when we eat at Waffle House now and she ask for sweet and low , I just say she’s not from the South and eat my grits the right way with salt , peeper and butter.


I did a semester at Philips Exeter in NH

I was surprised to see grits on the breakfast buffet one morning. Cream and sugar were sitting next to them. Cream is a must. Sugar is a must not.

Butter, yes. Sugar, no. The secret to great grits is....chicken broth. Substitute chicken broth for water, or half chicken broth, half water. Whatever your taste preference. Takes it to a different level.
