How it all began

The perfect pimento cheese was born in the Lowcountry of South Carolina and you have never had pimento cheese like this! The recipe originated with Sassy Henry. She would whip up batches of her delightful, southern style pimento cheese while living in Atlanta and tailgating at Braves games. Sassy, her husband Brian, and their two children moved to Pawleys Island, SC in 2002 where they took over the historic Sea View Inn.  It is there that Palmetto Cheese was featured as an appetizer each week during the summer lowcountry shrimp boils.  Needless to say, it was a guest favorite.

A family friend and cook at Sea View inn for 25 years, Vertrella Brown of Pawleys Island, is pictured on the container lid.  Vertrella is credited with adding the “soulful” touch to Sassy’s recipe. The result, Palmetto Cheese – The Pimento Cheese with Soul”.  One of the reasons Palmetto Cheese™ is so popular is that it’s made with real sharp cheddar cheese, whereas most pimento cheeses are made with processed or American cheese.

During visits to the Lowcountry, tourists make sure to purchase enough Palmetto Cheese to take home to share with family and friends. Palmetto Cheese was first introduced in local market outlets in Pawleys Island and Georgetown, SC. Now, Palmetto Cheese is available at many grocery store chains throughout the Southeast.

Palmetto Cheese is great to serve anytime of the year, especially while entertaining. Give it a try and you too will agree, this is the best pimento cheese on grocery shelves today!
