Megan Said:Can I use grits in a recipe that calls for hominy?
We Answered:Hominy is corn processed with a lye solution, which pops each kernel [imagine wet popcorn?] open and produces the distinctive kernel shape & texture. Grits are made FROM a dried form of hominy, and used always to be called "hominy grits". Grits are ground fine dried hominy, IOW, and are cooked like any hot cereal, sifted into boiling water and simmered until the right thickness. Hominy is left in whole kernels, white or yellow in color, and is cooked in soups or menudo [a kind of Spanish language soup made with tripe] or served as a side dish buttered & seasoned. If your recipe says "hominy", that's what they mean - not grits. If you used 4 cups of grits, you could probably pave your patio with the result.
