Trader Joe’s Grits, White Stone Ground


These stone ground white Trader Joe’s grits are a TJs staple, take around 30 minutes to make on the stove top, and have a great corn, creamy flavor to them when cooked properly. Stone ground grits always have a great, unique flavor, and are perfect for adding butter to, and even some cheese if that’s what you like. These are also a good value for this type of grits, with a price of $2.29 for 14 ounces. White corn imparts a really good flavor when you cook them on the stove top, so if you haven’t ever tried grits before, these are the perfect type to give a try. And as a nice added bonus, the package they come in has a typically Trader Joe’s fun and pretty design………….

Trader Joe’s Muesli review

6 thoughts on “Trader Joe’s Grits, White Stone Ground

  1. The bag I bought had the so many hulls from the corn it was impossible to get them tender and creamy. I kept cooking them finally over 45 minutes, adding liquid in hopes of a better texture. It was like eating a bowl of old popcorn. Hulls stuck in my teeth! Maybe I got a bottom of the barrel bag… I so wanted to like it….

  2. I have one big question to ask, “How in the Hell” does a person order ‘Trader Joe’s Stone Ground Grits’ from this site? I have tried every way I could think of to find the order form, but there does not seem to be one. Please send me the form or information on how to order your stone-ground grits.

    1. Don’t do it. They are not good. Just bought a bag and have had dismal results. I think they grind the corn cobs in their grits.

  3. I purchased a bag of Trader Joe’s Stone Ground White grits yesterday. Cooked them this morning. I followed the directions to a “T” but even after an hour of cooking they were stilly gritty and had no flavor. Will not buy again.

  4. Cooks Country TV show taste tested grits and the best were stone ground grits that required overnight soaking. I decided to try TJ’s grits, soaked them overnight and ended up cooking them for almost an hour before they started to pull away from the sides of the pan. I put them in a loaf pan, slice and fry them with eggs for breakfast. These grits are very coarse and have some hulls. I dumped the rest of the bag into my birdseed container. These grits are for the birds.

    1. PS
      The bulk white grits from Sprouts Farmers Market are similar to the ones from Trader Joe’s but not nearly as coarse. They cook in about 30 min but the pieces of hull are very noticeable.
      The Quaker hominy grits have no hulls and cook in about 20 min. I don’t think they have much flavor…not that any I have tried are particularly flavorful.
      The yellow bulk grits from Sprouts are my daily grits. They have no noticeable hulls, taste ok, and cook in 30 min.
