True grits

While grits are gaining popularity above the Mason-Dixon line, the Southern mainstay still remains a mystery for many.

Cobb, who says that grits have gained an identity outside of itself as a mere foodstuff. “There are all these spin-off things,” he says, “like grits as an acronym for Girls Raised in the South. It’s become one of [those] things that’s taken on a life of its own.”
