I have a favorite recipe of ours to share with you today, friends. This is one of my favorite frugal and simple breakfasts to make for my large tribe. I hope you like it, too!
3 1/2 cups medium grind whole grain cornmeal (grits)
4 Tablespoons ground flax seeds
2 Tablespoons granulated white sugar (optional, but recommended)
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
9 cups water
2 bags (12 ounces each) frozen berries of your choice (or fresh berries)
a large, deep, heavy pan (mine is 9 quarts) with a lid
a long handled wooden spoon
Bring the 9 cups of water to a boil in the large heavy pan. While the water is heating, combine the cornmeal, ground flax seeds, and granulated white sugar in a separate bowl.
|:: combine the cornmeal, ground flax, and white sugar ::|
|:: carefully add the cornmeal mixture to the boiling water ::|
Be careful when stirring as cornmeal grits tend to bubble and splatter when they cook, especially as they thicken.
After cooking for 5 minutes, carefully remove the pan from the heat and stir the coconut oil into the grits. Let the grits cool a bit before serving.
|:: cooked grits, ready to serve ::|
Add milk or cream or butter or whatever you like and serve.
|:: yum! ::|
