John's Pimento Cheese Spread
November 01, 2009

This was my frist attempt ever at making pimento cheese. I haven't actually had the stuff since I was a child, and it was always the stuff from the store. I have alot of jarred pimentos from my summer garden and decided to make this for a party. I doubled the recipe and made it exactly as written. I did not measure out the full one cup of mayo, I just added it a little at a time until it was how I wanted it. Like the first reviewer I used a hand mixer to help incorporate the cheese. I did use a block of extra sharp cheddar and shredded it myself, since I have read that the bagged shredded is no good for this kind of recipe. I did also add some of the juice from the peppers, just to add more flavor. Just a few splashes, maybe 3 or so tbsp of it. This was WONDERFUL! I love it! This will definitely be made again!
