Canewater Grits, Fish Fry, Cornbread Mix, Cornmeal, Polenta, & Corn Flour can be purchased every Saturday at the Forsyth Farmer's market, select retail stores throughout the low country and on our online shop.
We source organically grown, nonGMO corn for our products. We use a stone ground grist mill. We winnow the chaff and separate the grits from the meal with a handcrafted separator. We feel our grits and cornmeal are the best in the low country due to our artisanal small batch milling.
We do not degerminate, bleach or enrich our corn in order to preserve nutritional value. Therefore our corn products are unbolted and need refrigeration.
Canewater Farm's Recipes
Stone Ground Grits:
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, add one cup of of Grits & return to a boil then reduce the heat to low, once Grits begin to thicken add 1 cup heavy whipping cream (half & half or whole milk), cover and cook, stirring occasionally over low heat until creamy and thick about 45 minutes, if it starts to stick add more cream, add salt and butter to taste (don’t be shy with the butter).
