"Correct" grits consistency

Fida | Dec 31, 2004 01:35 PM

I've just experimented with making grits for the first time (so I was interested in the recent discussion).

However, my only experience with grits so far was the off-putting way they were served in my dormitory: runny and tasteless. I was cooking them the way I do oatmeal, which is until it's thick, no longer liquid, or even viscous. But I was just curious: what is the traditional consistency? When it's served as a side-dish with breakfast, is it eaten with a spoon or a fork?
