    My favorite grits so far

    The Oaxacan Green Grits are my favorite so far, followed by the blue followed by Bloody Butcher. I like them all a lot, but there’s something especially flavorful about the green grits. I make all of them with cheese and garlic powder.

    DELISH

    I have the world's best Shrimp & Grits recipe. I did not think it coud be any better, but with your grits and Trader Joe's Unexpected Cheddar, it was phenomenal!

    Really good

    Love the green grits. They look like yellow when cooked but have a richer flavor.

    Becoming our go-to bread flour

    We have used BSM TAM105 flour now for a couple of months and it is slowly becoming our go-to bread flour. It takes a little to adopt to using freshly milled flour, but it turns into wonderful sourdough breads either by itself or in combination with BSM whole wheat flour.

    Delicious taste

    I tried it with the freshly ground Einkorn, the bread was delicious. the proportion was 50% Einkorn and 50% unbleached white bread flour. I am very happy with your product. Thank you!!!

    New Age Biscuits

    After requesting and being denied the details on blended Marquis/Sonora biscuit flour mix I blended my own mix and made the best biscuits I have ever had. I will definitely be in the market for more flour.

    No Cooking Instructions

    I bought a bag of yellow grits from Whole Foods excited to support local and was quickly sorry I did. This morning I decided to make the grits only to find absolutely no cooking instructions anywhere on the bag. >:-| Jumping to the website I made a call and went through loop after loop never able to reach a live person. Taking to the website again to see if there are instructions somewhere, I did find instructions but for the white grits/polenta. Giving it a go. But suffice it to say these grits are going to taste like anger and frustration. Please, for the love of all things holy, print some stickers with instructions and slap them on the bags!
