HOMEMADE PIMENTO CHEESE

by Sheryl

My grandmother used to tell me to learn how to eat Pimento because she knew that whenever I took anything that has pimento I just feed it to her cat (which is a crazy pimento lover). Well, I was not a pimento fan when I was a little girl. But all that changed. It’s true that when we grow older we get to love things or food (as for me) that we hate before. And unlike me when I was their age, my kids love pimento. That’s why I taught myself to like and make pimentos. And it bad at all, it’s great! I’m sure my grandmother is very proud.

Like the other recipes that I shared, this too is very easy to prepare even my kids to know how to make this. Just toss everything together, sit it in the fridge for a couple of minutes, and you’re done! Easy peasy! And it tastes amazing and cheesy. It can be served as a spread on crackers or celery, scoop onto corn chips or tortilla chips, or slater over hamburgers and hotdogs.

For a quick and inexpensive lunch try a pimento cheese sandwich. I’m sure your kids are gonna love that! Or be like my grandmother who served it as a cocktail finger food dip. Either way, pimento is versatile and can go with anything.
