Our whole grain Wapsie Valley grits have a slightly nutty flavor. It is predominately a yellow corn variety, but about every eight ears is red. Some folks even toast the grits prior to cooking to bring out that nuttiness even more. We stone grind the whole nutrient dense grain including the bran and the heart or "germ". (Most store-bought grits are purposefully denatured by removing the bran and the germ so that they'll last on the shelf indefinitely.) This is why storing these grits in your refrigerator or freezer will prolong their freshness. Wapsie Valley grits are scrumptious served with country fried steak or shrimp, but folks enjoy them for breakfast, too. Like all of our products, they're Tennessee-ground Non-GMO Organically Grown Corn.
