Eat your grits with a smile

Jane Bruce of Chapel Hill (formerly of Charlotte and Charleston -- apparently Jane only lives in cities that start with CH) shared this with me a little while back, in exchange for cooking tips that I've shared over the years.

Take it with a pat of butter and a grain of salt. Another part of Jane's grits information noted that the proper amount of salt is one grain of salt per 10 grits.

The 10 Commandments of Grits
I. Thou shalt not put syrup on thy Grits.
II. Thou shalt not eat thy Grits with a spoon or knife.
III. Thou shalt not eat Cream of Wheat and call it Grits, for this is blasphemy.
IV. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's Grits.
V. Thou shalt use only salt, butter, and red-eye gravy as toppings for thy Grits.
VI Thou shalt not eat Instant Grits.
VII. Thou shalt not put ketchup on thy Grits.
VIII. Thou shalt not put margarine on thy Grits.
IX. Thou shalt not eat toast with thy Grits, only biscuits made from scratch.
X. Thou shalt eat grits on the Sabbath for this is manna from heaven.

I totally agree with these commandments! I've loved grits my entire life. They're great.
