Zingerman's version of this traditional Southern cheese spread features coarsely grated Cabot Cooperative 1 year aged cheddar, slow-roasted red peppers, Tellicherry black pepper, mayonnaise, and just enough cayenne to give it some heat. A fan favorite in their native Ann Arbor, this Pimento Cheese is great on a pretzel or cracker—and even makes a game-changing addition to your macaroni and cheese recipe. For a quick appetizer, serve it with celery sticks—the crispness provides excellent contrast to the robust, richness of the cheese. Made with pasteurized cows milk and animal rennet.

Established in 2001, Zingerman's Creamery is dedicated to crafting handmade full-flavored cheeses using traditional methods while sourcing the highest quality milk they can find from equally dedicated, small-scale regional farmers.
They preserve the incredible flavor of the fresh milk they receive by using old-world techniques coupled with the most precious of resources, time. All of their cheeses are hand-ladled to preserve the delicate characteristics of the curd and they use uncommonly-long sets to draw out a full, complex flavor and a low-temperature long-time pasteurization to maintain that flavor.
For best flavor, enjoy by date on the package. Once opened, use within 5-7 days.
