Recipe Tip

Centuries ago, English pubs provided crocks of cheese spreads and biscuits for their clientele. The spreads were generally made with the odds and ends of cheddar or Stilton cheese and mixed with butter or Port to soften the hard pieces of cheese. Customers would use their pocket knives to scoop out a small amount of the cheese mixture and spread it on crackers, to enjoy with a glass of ale.

So yummy! This never lasts long in our house.
This has everything you want in a recipe. It's quick, easy and tasty. I made two big batches for my curling club (48 people each batch) and it went over very well. Make extra - it's the kind of thing you'll like having in your refrigerator at all times.
