  1. Grits are simply coarsely ground cornmeal, either yellow or white, so pretty much any grocery store has them. I suggest you try Tyler Florence's shrimp and grits, it's killer.

    1. With enough butter and yellow cheese, Italian polenta will pass for grits in the dark. :)

      1. You can find them at Bulk Barn.

        1. I have purchased grits at Safeway but you can probably find them in most grocery stores under the Bob's Red Mill brand. The label says Corn Grits (also known as) Polenta.

            Bob's Red Mill now also sells 'white corn grits', with a similar coarseness. The grind is a more even, and bit finer than (most) stone ground grits.
