    I'm not Southern but I lived in WV for three years and I have a good friend from Georgia. The main argument I hear is whether grits should have butter and salt or butter and sugar.

    I feel like a non southern person made the grits. grits should be made with butter, water,salt and pepper. And use really grits not instant grits.

    A lot of these foods most southerners don't eat. I grew up eating butterbeans and boiled cabbage and fried chicken and pork ribs. Apple or lemon pie on the side sometimes peach or blackberry. cobbler for dessert. Cern bread and lima beans on the side. Buttermilk etc.

    Did you at least give them butter for their grits? Like my family break our fried eggs into them to them for flavor, most traditional southern states either serve them as cheesy grits and\ or grits and shrimp, I don't think it's normal anywhere to eat just the grits.

    This video did not represent the southern culture of food at all. Not one 'southern' dish was accurate. It's a disgrace and an embarrasment to all southerners. I no longer trust these videos because they're FAKE! You all have to do better.

      I always giggle when I hear someone say crayfish or crawdaddys, crawdads.
      Then, I tell stories of how you never eat a one that has a straight tale after being boiled bc that means it was dead before hittin' the water.
      For whatever reason, that's a mindblowing fun fact! Lol

    • BB Jo
      BB Jo 10 days ago +1

      It's a northern thing. I'm from Houston and relocated to Chicago. Shrimp is prawns and crawfish which the North knows nothing about is called crayfish or crawdags, one of the other. They sell them like many lobsters though, not like real crawfish.

    First if you have to chew any green leaf veggies for awhile then it wasn't cooked right. NOBODY from the south use chicken stock as "pot liquor". You flavor the water by cooking smoked meat until they fall apart in the water then add whatever greens you plan to cook. If you have to chew more than 3 times.. "it ain't done" 😎🤗🤗😎

U might as well be eating cream of wheat (ugh) Lol..After cooking ur grits, add butter, salt, black pepper, and throw in some sharp cheddar cheese and add a couple of fried eggs, over that's the way 2 eat grits!! I don't think I've ever seen a tater tot casserole look like that after cooking either..
