Look for whole grain grits (such as Bob’s Red Mill) made from whole corn, rather than degerminated corn. Some brands of grits call for different amounts of water; adjust the water as necessary according to package directions. Increase the amount of cayenne pepper if you like spice. Variations: Try wild greens, such as dandelion greens, lamb’s quarters, sorrel, or chickweed, in this recipe. You may require more or less cooking time in step 2, depending on the type of green.
