How to Cook Yellow Flaking Grits

Cooking yellow flaking grits is easy. The grits are made by degerminating yellow corn. The kernels are then ground into small, flaky grits. The making of this Southern staple, though, must be done carefully in order to avoid lumps and tiny balls forming in the mixture.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 cup yellow flaking grits
  • 2-qt. sauce pan
  • 4 cups water
