      Not so fast, missy. I couldn't find them at WF- only polenta.

          There's a brand of stone ground grits called Bob's Red Mill that I bought at an OC WF. I imagine they'd carry it in SD too.

            Bobs website shows: Corn Grits/Polenta, Corn Grits/Polents Organic, Grits/Polenta Gluten Free and Barley Grits.

            Them there don't count- I'm a-going to Tennessee.

              Aww. Just because Bob found a way to make us foodie lemmings buy his grits, y'aint gunna buy 'em???

              They're a bit coarser than polenta, if that makes any differnce. :P

        As a confirmed grits (and GRIT), it's impossible to get great grits here. I order mine online from this beautiful mill in southern Tennessee (Belvidere) - still use a water wheel, and a great husband-and-wife team own it. It's called Falls Mill - and the website is www.fallsmill.com. I usually just call them. I also get my corn meal from them. Once you have their grits, you'll never want anything else. The taste of the natural ingredient really shines through.(No - I have absolutely no connection with them, and they don't even know my name, but I found them when I was visiting family there about 18 years ago and it changed my Grits Exile in SoCal forever.)
