Recipe by Juenessa

This zesty cheese ring can be also made as a log. The jelly may seem strange, but it is what makes this appetizer delicious!

My aunt had her caterer make this one year for Thanksgiving... and I just had to track down the recipe. I tried this one and it got really good reviews at a potluck at work. Next time, I think I might try adding some kind of nut to the outside of the ring for another textural element/contrast. Fantastic overall though.
