- 4 cups water
- 4 cups milk
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups of Anson Mills coarse ground yellow grits
- Salt for season
- ¼ cup honey for drizzle and dip
- Oil for deep frying
Measure and place all ingredients, except for grits, in a pot on medium heat. Bring ingredients to a simmer and allow to simmer for 4–6 minutes.
Slowly whisk in grits in a steady stream. Continue to whisk until desired thickness, which should look stiff but pourable.
In a 9-inch-x-13-inch, greased baking pan, pour grits and smooth evenly with a spatula. Put in the refrigerator to cool for 30 minutes.
Cut into large fry-like shapes and deep fry at 375° for 4 minutes or until golden brown.
Sprinkle with salt and serve with a drizzle of honey.
