I find the statement Grits are ground hominy confusing. Were you saying Grit are made from White Corn? Grits are made from corn right?

Grits can be white , yellow, or speckled. Hominy is made from corn, grits are made from hominy. Kind of like, wool comes from sheep, you can knit a sweater out of the wool, but you cant make a sweater out of the sheep.

Now I'm starting to corn-fuse myself.
