Me, stirring for what feels like ages: This had better taste good.

Me, after tasting the final product: Holy crap this is good

Ingredients

  • 2.6 cups of milk. I had 2% handy.
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup "quick" grits. Mine read "quick 5-minute grits" on the box so who knows if minute grits would be different here. Don't use the stone-ground grits that you have to soak overnight. Those make great grits but, yeah, overnight.
  • 3 T butter. I had salted butter. Yes, on top of the other salt. It was fine.
  • 3T honey. I didn't want to use the good honey for this, so I got the crystallized stuff in the plastic bottle from the grocery store. Used a table knife to get some of the crystallized stuff in. Maybe 3T? Probably. Maybe more than that, mine came out really sweet. YMMV.

Melt the butter in a pot on the stove, medium to high heat. When melted, add everything else. Whisk frequently until you are bored to tears. During this time, it should come to a boil (because I put mine on high heat so it would speed up). At that point, lower the heat and keep stirring.

I said KEEP STIRRING. 

Eventually it will thicken up. Minute grits might take only 10 min? Seemed like mine took 20 which seems reasonable. Eventually they bubble and thicken and then you magically have this really creamy sweet stuff without the hard cronch of grits in it. 

Makes 4 helpings if they're generous; tbh probably more than that if you're reasonable about serving sizes.

Mine came out pretty sweet. Maybe next time I could use molasses? Maybe top it with fruit? I wonder how this will taste cold? I'll find out tomorrow. This is really sort of a grits pudding when you get down to it, what with cooking the milk on the stove and all. KEEP STIRRING.

10/10 will eat all of it eventually and will make again.
