Recipe by BecR2400

This is a great tasting cheese ball that is very simple and easy to prepare! Requires several hours chilling-- so plan ahead. Serve with assorted crackers or crusty bread, add a nice bottle of wine and grapes for a party or tucked into the picnic hamper. From Taste of Home.

I made this cheese ball for Christmas Eve using Stonewall Kitchen's Major Grey's chutney and we LOVED it. I made it with the brand noted in the recipe for New Years Eve and threw it out. There is no way to tell you the difference except to say "Try it." We love this recipe, but use the much higher quality Stonewall Kitchen's chutney.
