"For Hotfoot - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grits

Do you have something like cream of wheat? Somewhat similar, but a larger texture to the pieces. I had my first grits when I moved to TX back in 1976. I grew to love them!"

"Hi there,

Can somebody please tell me what grits are and what the equivalent would be in England? I regularly see this ingredient in American recipes but I have no idea what it is.
Thankyou."
