Pimento Cheese: Unrefrigerated

JungMann | Apr 17, 2014 08:09 PM

Pimento cheese sandwiches are a staple of church potlucks in the humid South, but in the urban Northeast, they're still a curiosity in the church refectory.

I'm bringing a pimento cheese ball shaped like a baby chick for our parish's Easter Vigil gathering, which means food will sit in a slightly cold (55-65 degrees depending on whether the doors are open) church hall for about 10 hours. Will pimento cheese made with Duke's hold up that long even if covered in cling film? Would substituting some cream cheese for the mayo lengthen its keeping time as some have suggested?
