Unicorn Grits Are Now a Thing in Charleston
Another food is getting the pink treatment, ya’ll.
An eatery in Charleston is putting a unique spin on the colorful trend: unicorn grits.
Millers All Day, a brunch restaurant in South Carolina’s culinary hot spot, recently debuted a rosy-hued twist on the traditional dish.
The grits don’t contain any artificial dyes, according to the restaurant’s Insta post. As Garden & Gun reports, the pastel dish gets its color simply from red kernels of regular corn.
According to article, a farmer who supplies Millers All Day owner Greg Johnsman with corn selected and grew stocks of red corn (which get its color from a random genetic abnormality) “for nearly a decade.” Johnsman bought out his entire supply of red corn—and Unicorn Grits were born.
Millers All Day sells bags of grits and cornmeal milled from the red corn so anyone can add a dash of pastel pink to their favorite dishes at home, too.
With no added glitter or sugary syrup, plain old grits prepared with a natural ingredients proves that there’s a new (and classy) way to pay homage to the magical trend.
And we’re all for it.
