World's Best Pimento Cheese

Marsha Gardner


Before we moved to Alabama the only encounter I had ever had with pimento cheese was the small jars of Kraft Pimento Cheese. My mom used it to stuff celery for a relish tray.

I had my eyes opened when we moved south. Pimento cheese is a staple in the southern family diet. Needless to say I had to put my stamp on this southern delicacy.
