SCHAEFER'S TAVERN CHEESE WITH OLIVE (8 OZ)
You may be surprised to learn that the "pâté of the South" did not originate below the Mason-Dixon. In fact, the earliest versions (made with cream cheese and pimientos) can be traced back to New York. Georgian farmers began cultivating pimientos in the 20th-century, and the spread became a Southern staple sometime before World War II.
