READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Saturn

This is an adopted recipe from the RecipeZaar account. Updated May 30, 2006. I have made some changes to the recipe. I added some flavour and subtracted some sugar. I like it this way.

This has a lovely flavor and is creamy and spreadable. I have made non cook versions of pimento cheese before so decided to try your recipe for something different. I loved the spicy hint (I might up it next time) and slight sweetness. I will definitely make this again! I think it would be great for gatherings ringed with crackers and/ or celery sticks too. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Reviewed for ZWT 3.

  2. Stir in vinegar and water.
  3. Cook over low heat until thick. Stir with a wire whisk. Usually takes about 5 minutes. You'll know when it is ready as it will be frothy and a lemon yellow colour.
  4. Set aside until cool.
  5. In medium bowl, mix together cheese, pimientos and sauce.
  6. Stir in cayenne, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and garlic. Adjust to taste.
  7. Chill until ready to use.
