Grits derives from the Old English word "grytt," meaning coarse meal. Grits are made from “hominy”, dried kernels of corn with the hull and germ removed. The hominy is ground into grits, then boiled in water or other liquids. Grits may be either white or yellow, depending on the color of the corn. The most common version in supermarkets is “quick grits”, but grits are also available as stone-ground or old-fashioned grits. It’s also possible to find instant grits which are very finely ground. Many southerners don’t consider instant grits to be true grits as they don't produce a good texture and are not as flavorful as stone ground grits.
