Grits: the taste from the South. One can use instant grits, but stone-ground are more authentic and yield a better final grit product. I import mine from Crooks Corner in Chapel Hill, NC.

Simmer the grits in the uncovered saucepan. Set a timer for 20 minutes and then get ready to stir frequently. This prevents the grits from clumping, which is, frankly, unappetizing.

After 10 minutes, add 2 tablespoons of butter. This helps the grits achieve maximum creaminess. Continue stirring frequently, which by now is your new favorite hobby.

With 2-3 minutes left, add the grated cheese, remaining butter, and salt and pepper to taste. Keep in mind that grits require A LOT of salt, but it is better to add too little than too much.
