CALLING...ASKING ALL SOUTHERNERS

Can I do a spoofy quiz comparing the North and South without a hostile reaction.

It will all be just a joke.

AND!!!! Can I depend on someone, in good spirit, to rebut it with a joke quiz going the other way???

We had some a while ago with the UK and other places.

I've tried to eat 'em, never kissed 'em.
Some form of corn, white, consistency of oatmeal. Interesting texture. It needs something, but I can't decide what...

My husband makes grits. The kids like them with butter & maple syrup. He likes them with eggs & cheese. Thanks to the fact that he was a military brat, we get food from all over the United States. They were also in Australia for a few years so imagine how amazed I was when he made me pavlova. Thankfully, he didn't like vegemite so we don't have to suffer that.

I was born in Illinois and I've been in Tennessee a long time, so I am sure I will be able to relate to both sides!

You'd be hard-pressed to offend me, for the most part. It sounds like a great quiz to come.

Grits are actually the innards of corn & are a starch. Although, I think eating them with sugar & butter or something sweet tends to be more prevalent in the "northern" southern cities (if you will). You can do almost anything your heart desires with them. Usually, I'll have them with margarine, salt, & pepper. Sometimes, I like to add some garlic powder, cheese, and/or pieces of breakfast sausage. I've also fried off some bell peppers, onions, etc & added them. You can try them with any favorite condiments or foods.

Besides for breakfast, my mom would make them whenever she cooked liver-n-onions. The grits eaten with a bite of liver will make it more palatable, as it decreases that overwhelming flavor, & the cooked onions with a very light gravy help also. Less frequently, she made that meal with mashed potatoes, instead. I was made to eat it when I was young, but now I like it - only as described; can't eat only liver.

anyone like polenta? if you do, then you like grits. it's the same corn product. polenta is just prepared differently from grits.

Ya'll may know I'm in N'Awlins. We eat plenty, or should I say, beaucoup, grits. Liver and grits with brown gravy, grits with butter and salt (unsalted if you have high blood pressure), fried grits-leftover grits from the day before, fried in bacon grease, butter, or oil--mmmm, tasty! Bring on the quiz, Tuz. We have been served!

I worked in Rhode Island for a few weeks, few years ago. Had a hard time finding grits.

I'm certain that one of us Southeners would write a corresponding quiz.

Liver and grits. Liver...and grits.

You've managed to make haggis and turnips sound yummy.

Thanks for the grits ideas. Who knew you could mix with so many different things?
(I'll have to pass on the liver, though. Not a big fan of organ meat.)

Not a problem. Most don't find liver appetizing.

But that can change, our tastebuds & olfactory sensory nerves need replacement b/c they, basically, become worn out. Both occur @ approximently the same time, every 5 - 7 yrs & the transition can last for up to 6 mo's.
Finding that you like a food that once made you want to wretch isn't the only product of these changes, you may wind up hating a food that was one of your favorites! I can no longer taste watermelon, but I have some every so often, in hopes that I will be able to.

That's very interesting Nsin....
That would explain why - every once in a while,
I'll get a craving for some kind of food that
I haven't eaten for a long time....And then
I'll overeat it until I can't stand it!!!!

I have lived in Atlanta for 27 years and I still have not had grits. I was raised in Minnesota, and up there we eat Cream of Wheat.

Yes, I was raised on Cream of Wheat, Oatmeal, and then when it came out, Malt-O-Meal occasionally.

What is hominy, compared to grits? My mom used to serve canned honimy which I found utterly disgusting. I always thought grits were the same thing, but I am really not sure.

hominy is the whole kernel of corn processed to remove the outer hull. (my Grandma used to make her own with the ashes from her cookstove and i wish i had had the sense to write down how she did it.)

grits and/or polenta is ground corn -- ground not quite as finely ground as cornmeal.
(not to be confused with cornmeal mix that most are familiar with for making cornbread)

both hominy and grits are certainly an acquired taste, but they can be prepared a variety of ways into some delightful dishes.

check out www.allrecipes.com and search for grits, hominy and polenta to see what i mean.

Let me add that grits do not taste like hominy. Hominy still has some flavor of the corn. The textures are different. If you didn't know that grits came from corn, you w/dn't be able to tell by eating them.

I really cannot fathom how any of the above relate to the cultural differences between England and Scotland?
