Augusta’s Creations December 31, 2008

I l-o-v-e pimiento cheese. However, Casey doesn’t quite harvest those same feelings. This is why I don’t make pimiento cheese at home…because I couldn’t let it go to waste. I would feel obligated to eat it…ALL of it. At this year’s MCES, we stopped by Augusta’s Creations for a sample. This family-owned business is located in Charlotte, NC, and specializes in pimiento cheese, buttermilk pie, and chicken pot pie. I know that sounds like a totally random selection, but if you think about it, these are all wonderful southern comfort foods. We sampled their jalepeño pimiento cheese and instantly fell head over heels.  If you’re not a fan of spicy, then don’t worry because the jalepeño doesn’t add spice, it just enhances the flavor.  As a matter of fact, it enhances the flavor so much so that Casey and I were fighting for the last bite! This snack is rather inexpensive running about $5.99 for a 1/2 pound tub…which won’t last long, at least in our house. The only kicker is the $25 shipping. Why so high, you ask? Well, the pimiento cheese is perishable and must be shipped in a cooler.

As a side note, it can be spelled pimento or pimiento (my personal preference).

Okay, so that jalepeno pimento cheese sounds a-mazing! So, did you bring me back any? ;o)

Absolutely! I had a little tub in the car for you, but somehow it magically disappeared. I can’t imagine what happened!!
