She prepared it as a cheese pimiento turning it into a much-loved family recipe. From family to friends and friends of friends, since then, the spread has been a favorite staple in many Christmas gathering meant for anyone who loves cheese on loaves of bread, toasts, and crackers.
When the family began giving the spread as a holiday gift, the response was an ever-increasing number of friends clamoring for jars of the spread that they can take at home.
