Extra-coarse grits

  • c

Anyone know where I can mail order these? I'm trying to duplicate the shrimp and grits recipe of a local restaurant and they use very, very coarse grits (there's baby-pea-size tender white corn fragments in it-- very different from any other grits I've had). I saw a bag of Goya hominy that looks like it might do the job(posole, I believe it's referred to as).

  1. I love the stoned ground grits from Falls Mill (www.fallsmill.com tel. # 931 469-7161). If you do a CH search and type in "great grits" you'll get a thread that mentions this as well as several other sources for grits.

    1. Here's an online sources for coarse grits:

      1. The current issue of the "Simple Cooking" newsletter has an extended rhapsody about different types of grits, FYI.

          1. There are a number of stone-ground grits vendors on line. I have ordered some, but found that plain old Alberts was good enough for us. Very pricey for stone ground.

            1. Now that I have my copy of Simple Cooking in front of me:

              Adams Mill (Dothan, Alabama) 800.239.4233. John Thorne commends the coarse speckled white grits ($2.08 for a two pound bag, $10 minimum order + shipping).

              Anson Mills (Columbia, SC) 803.467.4122. John Thorne commends the complicated sorting and mixing process for their Antebellum Style grits, which is creamy for stone-ground grits. $3.95 per 12 oz bag; minimum order of 4 bags + shipping.

              Falls Mills (mentioned by a previous poster) (Belvidere, TN) 931.469.7161.

              Logan Turnpike Mill (Blairsville, GA) 800.84-GRITS. The source of speckled white grits sold by Hoppin' JOhn's of Charleston (www.hoppinjohn.com).

                  Thank you so much Karl. So very nice of you to help us.

                2. I realize this is a VERY old post, but I am wondering if you ever located the extra coarse stone ground grits you were looking for? I am on a similar search, having some very coarse white grits in the past. I am even thinking of trying to grind my own..... I looked at the suggested posts, but cannot determine if the grits are coarse enough for me. All suggestions welcome. Thanks!

                  1. Haha. I read your post as Extra-corse grit. I'm a crafter (metal) and got excited and clicked on this link thinking you wanted to talk about sandpaper grit.
