Wild Blueberry Buttery Grits

Makes 4 servings


  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup grits
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 2 cups frozen wild blueberries thawed
  • 1 tbsp sugar


  • Prepare grits by bringing 4 cups of water to boil over medium heat in a large saucepan.
  • Meanwhile, add 2 cups of thawed frozen blueberries and 1 tbsp of sugar to a saucepan over medium-low heat. Bring to a simmer.
  • Add 4 tbsp butter and stir until melted. Keep warm over low heat until ready to serve.
  • Whisk in 1 cup of yellow grits (I use creamy home-style grits from my local farmer's market) and 1 tsp of salt to the boiling water.
  • Stir for 3-4 minutes until thickened then remove from heat. Or you can keep warm on low heat until ready to serve.
  • Serve grits hot in a bowl with a couple hearty spoonfuls of blueberry butter on top.
