How grits are made

Start with fresh corn

At Cotton Blues in Hattiesburg Mississippi, we go through close to 200 pounds a month of grits. They’re stone ground in Oxford, Mississippi with a 1910 grist mill. The high-quality corn and stone ground process allows the ground corn to absorb spices better than the typical steel milled corn you find in the store.

Our grits are milled by “The Original Grit Girl” and when they arrive at Cotton Blues they are no more than three days old.

We want our customers to see where their food is coming from, so we took a trip to Oxford so you can learn about the process. Watch the video below!

At Cotton Blues we believe in supporting our neighbors as much as possible. So we source catfish, grits, milk, rabbit, coffee, bread and other ingredients from small businesses here in Mississippi.

Cotton Blues is open seven days a week in Hattiesburg Mississippi and you’ll find a great assortment of dishes on our extensive menu. All food is prepared with fresh ingredients for the best taste. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are also available to please all of our guests.
