Pimento Cheese Spread

I love pimento cheese. I love it on crackers as a snack. I love it between bread as a sandwich for lunch. It’s the quintessential “munchy” that combines the creamy, smooth texture of cheese with the pungent bite of roasted red pepper. It is also one of the foods I remember most fondly growing up. It was just always there … in Mom’s refrigerator, in Grandma’s refrigerator … I always had access to it. 

I always have some in my refrigerator, too.

Then, one day, I didn’t. 

And I was craving it. 

So, I made some! Problem solved!

It was so good! I tried to remember why I had never made it from scratch before … now I remind myself that the store-bought variety just doesn’t compare to the “real thing”.

The folks over at Serious Eats have a great article on the history of pimento cheese spread written by Robert Moss … apparently, it all started in New York!
