A Charleston, South Carolina Specialty
We've got the people of Charleston on our mind this week. We are touched, comforted and encouraged by their unity and shared sense of loss, a lesson for the world and the country. To celebrate thie beautiful city of Charleston, one of our favorite destinations in the U.S., we are sharing a favorite product and some recipes.
We consider Carolina Plantation Stone Ground Grits the Rolex of grits. These grits are coarse-ground the old fashioned way, processed between the granite stones of an antique Meadows gristmill. Chefs in several upscale Southern restaurants serve Carolina Plantation Grits on their menus, and we serve these at home. The grits have a rich taste and a thick, creamy texture. The longer they cook, the creamier they get. Top them with grated cheddar cheese, or just plain butter...delicious!
Carolina Plantation stone-ground grits are packaged in 2-pound cloth bags. According to most orthodox rabbis, plain corn grits do not need kosher certification. For information, recipes, and to purchase, visit the Carolina Plantation web site.
How to make grits and serve grits: We love our grits with eggs and toast - or sometimes, we serve them like the mainstream chefs with shrimp (faux kosher shrimp of course) or alongside grilled or fried fish. Here are recipes for Cheese Grits and Easy Slow Cooker Grits.
