    Hi all,

    I am soooo in to making stuff from scratch and being a southern gal I wanted to make some old fashioned pimentio cheese! The peppers were from my last years crop that I smoked and dried. (I reconstituted them in olive oil for a couple of days). I used four different cheeses, two were smoked, 2 were not: (I didn't smoke them, they came that way) - smoked white cheddar, smoked sharp cheddar, dubliner and monteray jack. I made the mayo from scratch, added some vidalia onion and fresh parsley. I then deep fried some tortilla's and chowed down!


    Even my baby girl got in on the action:



    I've been making homemade mozzarella and want to learn to smoke it. MMMmmmm.

    Very nice I'm trying to get everything I need to start making cheese. I have a lot of it but still need to make a cheese press

    Hi Squirrel,
    Looks like some really great pimento cheese. My wife also makes it from scratch but yours looks and sounds like it may be a contender. Looks great. I also enjoy the scratch approach.

    Looks yummy! And I have a cat that looks just like yours.
     
  5. Wow, that looks real good. Is there anything you don't make from scratch! I noticed in your Brisket post you had some canning jars on the counter. what is in them??

    Thanks everybody! I like doing things the old fashioned way. BC - all those little jars on my counter (about fifty of them!) are my herbs and spices. Many of which I grow and dry myself. The ones I can't, I order from The Spice House. I like to experiment! It's fun to be retired!
