    Every time I add water to my grits, they get lumpy. I can never seem to not make this happen?

    HELP!

    Proportions: 4 cups of water to 1 cup of grits

    Boil the water first, add the grits while stirring vigorously. They will lump if not well stirred.

    I sometimes make the grits in the microwave. Same proportions but I mix them with cold water, put it in a microwaveable bowl and zap for 10 min. (more or less, depending on the microwave).

    Ha ha wow. I didn't think people would actually repomd to this thread. I was making some this morning and I was just getting frustrated that they had lumps. My method of making them is putting water in the microwave and then having he grits in a bowl and addinhe water I thinn my problem is I don't get the water boiling and the grits aren't absorbed the right way. Oh well, I will try again tomorrow and post my results

    Now I'm a southern person too but I have never thought to add milk....Now cheddar cheese on the other hand......

    Gravy would be good too. These grits were from a pack and I have always had trouble with lumps but not with actual......homeade grits....that you boil and everything
