Coarse Blue Grits
May 12, 2018
It is always fun to take a very traditional staple and funk it up. VINCENT COUNTRY loves grits! I decided to use blue coarse grits instead of traditional grits. To me there is a nuttier flavor and they cook up smoother. They are not a typical grit found in the grocery store, at least I have not found them. I order them fresh from a milling company. It is a fairly simple recipe. My tip is to stir often.
- 6 c. water
- 1 T Salt
- 2 c. Blue coarse grits
- 8 oz. mascarpone
- Salt and pepper to taste
Put water and salt into a saucepan, bring to a boil.
Reduce water to medium, add grits while stirring constantly with a whisk.
Add mascarpone to grits, continue to stir consistently.
Reduce heat to low and cover. Be sure to whisk every 5 minutes.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Cook for 30 minutes.
