Where to buy good grits in NW WA?
Hi -- I live in Canada (Gulf Islands, off the BC coast) but shop in Bellingham regularly. Can't find stoneground (or other better-than-instant) grits, which I love. Can anyone tell me where to buy them? Also looking for blue corn meal (I grew up in New Mexico) -- can't find it anywhere!
Thanks for your help!
Having gone on my own grits odyssey a while back, I concluded that stoneground grits are unavailable in this neck of the woods (someone please prove me wrong). I order mine online; with shipping this makes for expensive grits, but worth it IMO. Here's my list of fine southern grist mills, my go-to source is Logan Turnpike.
Anson Mills makes good grits and does internet sales, but Foster and Dobbs, a cheese shop here in Portland, sells it...perhaps if you contact them, they can tell you where else they might ship it in the PNW: http://www.ansonmills.com/products-pa...
Our local here in Portland, is Bob's Red Mill, but I do not know if they stone grind their grits, you will have to ask: http://www.bobsredmill.com
Bob's Red Mill makes/sells blue corn meal, too. If you find a place up there that sells their stuff, you can always ask them to order the blue cornmeal next time they order.
Both the Community Food Co-op and Terra Organica carry Bob's Red Mill products according to their site, and that would have been my first suggestion, find a food co-op.
Happy New Year and good luck in your quest sun lover!
