Bob's Red Mill Organic Polenta Corn Grits are made with only the finest golden corn for a rich flavor that is sure to please the palate.
Native Americans offered the first settlers in the U.S. bowls of Rockahominie, a dish consisting of ground up corn grain cooked into a creamy texture. It is believed this corn mixture kept many of the settlers alive during those cold winters.
Today, corn grits hold a prominent place in soul food and southern dishes. They are also used as a side or a pairing with dishes containing very heavily spiced ingredients. Grits may be eaten covered in gravy, cheese or butter and salt; or served with seafood, meats or vegetables. Grits also make a delightful breakfast when served as a hot cereal topped with milk and honey or brown sugar.
Grits are a great way to help meet the body's daily energy needs. The fiber content helps you feel full for longer periods of time and promotes regular digesting functioning. Polenta is a dish that has been popular in Italian and other European cuisine, and is now gaining fans in America as well. It is made from coarse ground corn (grits), boiled in water to create a porridge. This can be topped and served immediately for a worm corn side dish. Alternatively, you can spread the porridge in a pan and refrigerate it until it sets. The the polenta can be cut into squares and baked, grilled or fried. Similar to pasta, cooked polenta is delicious topped with marinara sauce, shredded cheese, or grilled with roasted vegetables.
