We were stationed at Charleston Air Force Base in S. Carolina for 13 yrs from 1976-1989. I learned to love grits and the tradition of eating Hoppin' John on New Year's Day for good luck! Even though we don't live there anymore I still keep the tradition, but have tweaked it a little over the years. Hope you like it.
