This recipe is from Becky, my brother Forest's wife, who is originally from Charleston, South Carolina. She says this is a Southern recipe and she has been making it for years! My brother (a northerner) will not even let her put it in the fridge to chill before he wants some -- so it must be good!! I hear that it is great on anything: crackers, veggies, meats, the doorknob… whatever’s handy… They even make sandwiches out of this stuff at the Master's Tournament in Georgia! Enjoy!
