I got this recipe many years ago from a fellow homeschool mom’s mother. To this day, I’ve never had a better pot of grits. They’re SO creamy!!


  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1.5 cups stone ground grits


  1. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT for the grits in a dutch oven or other heavy large pot. (I prefer a cast iron dutch oven because of it’s even heat distribution). Turn the heat to medium and slowly heat til it JUST BEGINS to boil. Remove from the heat for a moment. Whisk in the grits 1/2 cup at a time. Return the pot to the burner & cook on low heat for about 45 minutes stirring occasionally. If the mixture gets too thick, add a little more milk or some water.
