Pride in My Grits

Who knew that grits were a healthy grain? I’ve cut down on carbs lately, so grits were on the “avoid” list until last Thursday. My sweet friend, Beth and I took a field trip to Wilsonville, AL to tour the grist mill owned and operated by McEwen & Sons. Why? Because like most southerners, I take pride in my grits and I want to prepare the freshest and healthiest possible. With a little research I discovered that Birmingham chefs like Frank Stitt, Chris Hastings and Clifton Holt serve McEwen & Sons Grits in their restaurants; so I scheduled an afternoon at Coosa Valley Milling & Hardware.
