  • A cup of mayonnaise
  • A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • A tablespoon of sugar


How to Make the Spread

  • Prepare everything.
  • By using a double boiler, melt the Velveeta cheese with low heat. Make sure that you melt it properly and not scorch it.
  • Once the cheese melts, add up the milk
  • You can also add the sugar
  • Add up the vinegar
  • Add up the diced pimento, but make sure to drain the liquid
  • Remove the pan from the stove. Let it cool. It doesn’t have to completely cool off, but it should cool a bit.
  • Add the Mayo and mix well. Keep it in a container (an airtight one) and then keep it in the refrigerator. Once it has cooled off completely, it would thicken up.
  • You can serve it on toasts. Plan or fresh bread would be perfect. if you don’t have bread, you can use the crackers too.


Suggestions and Advices

  • Using the double boiler would be the most ideal way to melt the cheese. The possibility of burning would be limited and small. However, if you don’t have any double boiler, you can use a saucepan or microwave. But just make sure that you watch over the saucepan. DON’T leave it just like that. If you are using the microwave, do it in intervals of 30-seconds to check the melting state.
  • You can actually create a double boiler-look alike cooking style by having a skillet that is filled with water. Have an ovenproof bowl or smaller pan within the water, and you should be able to melt the cheese. Check on the heat. It should be low, so you basically have a ‘gentle’ boil. Lowe heat will also ensure that water won’t splash up into your food.
  • When you want to add the pimento, make sure that you have drained the liquid first. Add it to the mixture after you have melted the cheese. 4 ounce of pimento should be enough. However, some people may feel that the consistency of the mixture is too thick. If you have the same thought, you can add the liquid (from the draining). The thickness (or runniness) of the cheese depends on personal preference, really, so it’s up to you. If you don’t need the liquid, you can easily toss it away.
