FALL IS COMING AND WITH IT GRITS MAKE A RE-APPEARANCE ON THE BREAKFAST MENU AT CHARRED OAKS INN

Grits are typically associated with the South and considered to be not only the ultimate comfort food, but an integral part of breakfast. What are grits? Grits are made from dried, mature corn kernels that are ground into smaller coarse bits. They are very similar to Italian polenta, but the two are typically made from very different types of corn and the fineness of the grind is also different. Polenta is more coarse. There are four types of grits: 1) Stone-Ground Grits aren’t always easy to find, especially outside of the south, but they seem to be making a comeback.

CHARRED OAKS INN GUESTS FROM FAR AND WIDE COME TO ATTEND RAILBIRD!

What's a Railbird? A Railbird is a horse racing enthusiast known for sticking close to the action, hanging on the rail as each contender comes barreling down the track.
