Gridts?

Hi all,

Sorry if this seems like a stupid question, but what are Gridts, was watching the Coleman video and it was driving us insane. I have never seen it in Australia before.

Ok, either I spelt it wrong or none of the 30 or so viwers know what it is. I mean the stuff he cooks up for breakfast every day… is it like oat bran or something.

Yeah, its a hot breakfast cereal like oatmeal. Its usually eaten in the south, and tastes like cardboard unless you put sugar in it. Gets creamier than oatmeal too, kinda like cream of wheat.

LOL!

kaize…it’s actually “GRITS!”

And if you’re a Sounthern Boy like me and Ronnie, you grew up on the stuff!

Here’s a site for you with the all the info on this Southern Staple:

You don’t KNOW what you’re missing, brother!

I think you mean “grits.” Do you know what hominy is? It’s sort of like giant corn kernels, and very starchy. Tasty too! Great with butter, salt and pepper! Anyway, grits is made from hominy and is sort of creamy like Cream of Wheat, if I’m not mistaken. It is a traditional staple from the American “Old South.” Ah, yes…follow this link!

By the way, what is vegemite? :slight_smile:

Grits? Grits are made from corn. They contain 0.5g of fat, 29g of carbs, 2g of fiber and 3g of protein. Those nutritional facts are per 1/4 cup serving, which is 130 calories. The reason you might not be able to find them in Austrailia is that they are a traditional southern U.S. food. I personally love them and grew up eating them with breakfast and with fish. I hope this can help you.

Yes, grits. A southern favorite. Yum.

They taste great without sugar. Just put some pepper on them.

Thanks Everyone, I suspected the spelling was the problem… would you believe we put an extra D in every food name in Australia?.. guss not.

Vegimite, is the single most foul tasting thing on earth, but some people here like it. As I always say, its what you eat to make you appreciate everything else you eat. You spread it on some bread for breakfast and then everything else through out the day tastes that much better.

I’ve actually had vegemite (I’m from Arizona) and it is definitely an aquired taste. Although, I did think it tasted Okay on toast.

Grits are good too. I skip the butter and prefer using some honey.

LOL! What is it made of? My research turns up nothing, except a few words about yeast extract. I may have to try it someday just to say I did :slight_smile:
