A while ago I was talking to my husband about how our families celebrated Thanksgivings when we were children. We were comparing different foods we had (he is from the midwest and I grew up in the southeast) and I mentioned how my grandma always had Homemade Pimento Cheese with crackers as one of our appetizers. You can imagine my surprise when he had NO IDEA what Pimento Cheese was! Y’all, I have failed my husband because apparently, I have been neglecting to share with him all these years! I immediately whipped up a batch and he of course loved it!
Give it a try and be sure to let me know what you think, I’ll be serving this to my family next week at Thanksgiving to be sure to pass that tradition on!
