Recipe by Toby Jermain
This is similar to Price's Pimiento Cheese or other similar cheese spreads found all over the southern U.S., but this has a lot more personality and flavor than most. Good on crackers, for stuffed celery, or for making tortilla roll ups, thinned with a little extra mayonnaise. Prep time does not include setting time
- 1 (6 ounce) jar pimientos, drained
- 1 medium onion, grated, not chopped (chopped is too coarse)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic granules
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon citric acid (sour salt)
- 1⁄2 lemon, juice of
- 1⁄2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 -2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise (about)
- 1 1⁄2 lbs sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
