I admit that I’m relatively new to the grits scene. Being a New Englander, they weren’t ever served in my house.  Now, grits are all the rage.  I’ll admit it, I love Shrimp & Grits. But what about farina?  Here’s my recipe:

Farina/Quick Creamy Wheat 1 Cup

Whole Milk  1 Quart

Heavy Cream  3 Cups

Kosher Salt  2 Tsp

Ancho Chile Concentrate Powder (RC Fine Foods)  1 Tsp

Smoked Gouda Cheese (Shredded)  3/4 Cup

Butter  2 T

Combine milk, cream, salt & ancho powder.  Bring to a boil.  Add cream of wheat and gouda.  Simmer for 3-5 minutes.  We’re done.  Adjust the seasonings as you like.  Next time you’re thinking about making grits, try some cream of wheat.

If you like what you see, please consider hiring me for an in-home dinner or cooking lesson. I run a personal chef business based out of Frederick, MD. Get more information here. Thank you.
