  1. I live in the opposite corner of the country so bear with me….are grits the same as polenta like you can buy in a plastic tube at the store? Could I possibly use polenta for the grits recipes, understanding that it is already cooked cornmeal?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Grits ate ground up corn. You can order them online, Lila. I have not tried polenta but they are supposed to be very close to the same thing. You could try it but I cannot advise you.

  2. I’m A Grit Eating Fool. This Is Fantastic.
