Here is my big Free Times story on Anson Mills and grits.
Fun fact about the dead tree edition of the story (which I will send you next week, Mom): those grains on the cover aren't actually grits. Looks to me like some kind of wheat berry or other grain. Glenn Roberts of Anson Mills showed us a bunch of different grains, but I don't have notes on which grain that was, nor do I know how it got on the cover.
There's also an incorrect caption. But small embarrassments aside, the article is up and I'm happy.
Here is a dish I made last week: yellow grits topped with a very simple sauce made from pancetta, canned tomatoes, garlic, and lots of parsley and salt and pepper.
I cooked the grits in the crockpot for a day and a half with just water and salt. They were amazing.
