What's an instant grit?Okay Im accepting bets. How long will it be before someone asks what a grit is? HaHa. No seriously, I have right many stored. I do so as I would most anything else. I place several of the packs of quick grits, emptied, into a maylar.
For the instant, they are also emptied into maylars and stored the same way with O2. I place the packs out of 2 boxes into a smaller maylar so I don't open more than I need at a time.
I'm with ya on the pound of bacon a day brother..We know it's bad for us, but man ain't it good, especially with a little sugar sprinkled on it after it's cooked, I do that then break the bacon up and add some extra sharp cheddar cheese ,salt and pepper and butter and sometimes I add some white gravy mix while boiling the grits at the end to make em creamy and not stick.. They are one of the healthiest foods up until the point you start to Doctor them up.Grits have been a major stable for me for 30 years. I used to get the bacon flavored ones in individual packages, but can't find them any more. Only the plain ones or butter flavor.
So I just buy the bacon pieces sold as salad toppings for my grits and scrambled eggs. Can get plenty of taste without the hassle of cooking them and I control how much I eat that way. Given the opportunity I'll eat a whole pound of bacon in a day.
Discovered agave nectar last year. Now if I put ANY sweetener in my tea it's this stuff. That and a chunk of lemon.....better than booze! (almost)My hot cereal is a mixture of instant grits (Albers Quick Grits), cream of rice and Farina (Maypo or Malt-o-Meal). I put it in a bowl, nuke it in the microwave, stir in cinnamon, butter and agave nectar (better than honey). Then I stir in some granola (preferably with dried fruit) and let it cool a little. Hmmmm good.
The mixture gives me corn, rice, wheat, maybe some nuts (from the granola), oats, fruit, butter and calcium/fat from the milk. I have each of these in my LTS food containers.
I was going to go there but sense you beat me to it...LOL(annoyingly screechy voice) "What exactly, is a Grit ?
"No true southerner would ever use instant grits".
