Scape stopped serving its delicious honey nut grits a while ago. The taste and texture of the dish was perfect. I would love the recipe! – Jennifer Poindexter

Scape's Toasted Nut & Honey Grits


2 oz. pecans, chopped
2 oz. walnuts, chopped
2 oz. pine nuts
2 oz. slivered almonds
2½ cups heavy cream
2½ cups chicken stock
1 cup stone-ground grits
3 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
4 Tbsp. lavender honey*


• Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
• Toast the nuts in the oven on a cookie sheet until golden brown, about 6 to 7 minutes. Cool on a rack.
• Once cool, place the nuts in a bowl and mix evenly.
• In a small saucepan, bring the cream and stock to a simmer over moderate heat. Slowly whisk in the grits.
• Stir constantly for 12 to15 minutes until completely cooked. Remove from heat and stir in the shredded cheese.
• Spoon the grits into a large warmed bowl. Sprinkle with 2 ounces of the toasted nuts (Store remaining nuts in a sealed container in the refrigerator.), then drizzle with lavender honey.

*Lavender honey can be purchased at all Straub’s locations, straubs.com

I have made this several times, and It is delicious. I wanted to mention that it can be made very simply without chicken stock or lavender honey. It's still wonderfully comforting and warming to your soul. I'm from the south, and grits aren't typically made like this, but I'll be sending this recipe back home! Enjoy
