Palmetto Cheese Ring
2 containers – 12 oz. Palmetto Cheese
1/2 cup pecans, roasted and chopped
1 red pepper, halved lengthwise and seeded Red pepper jelly or relish
Mix together Palmetto Cheese with pecans. On a platter, place an upside down cup so you’ll have an easy way to create a center. Spoon cheese mixture around the cup to make a ring. Pat with your hands or the back of a spoon to make a uniform shape. Place in refrigerator while you make the bow.
Red Bow – using a pairing knife, cut a bow shape (two triangles pointed toward each other) from one pepper half.Take the other half and cut two long pieces for the ribbons of the bow. Place your bow pieces on the bottom center of your ring. Remove the cup from the center and fill the well created with pepper jelly.
Optional – garnish with rosemary sprigs or parsley. Serve with your favorite crackers.
