Mystery Spread.
« on: March 04, 2016, 10:50:31 AM »
Usually, box lunches on tours are rubber ham and cheese sandwiches on styrofoam.  On one recent excursion we were given something very nice but mysterious.  The sandwich was shredded cheddar cheese on a spread that was dark orange and looked like chutney.  It was a little piquant but not quite chutney.  It certainly wasn't sweet enough to be jam or marmalade.  It was not Branston pickle. 

Are there any E-Hellions from the UK or Ireland who might know what this wonderful accompaniment for cheddar cheese might be?

I was thinking something like pimento cheese spread...

This would be my guess too. One of my favourite combinations, actually.

What I was thinking, too. Some people (not many) add a little pickle juice to their pimento cheese recipe

It was quite likely some form of pickle, there are all sorts of different ones, not just Branston. "Cheese and pickle" is a common sandwich combination.

It was unlikely to be "pimento cheese", as that isn't really something that commonly exists here.

Thanks, everyone for the interesting suggestions. 

They all sound tasty but none of them seem quite right.  Because we were in the Falklands, I assumed it was a product from the UK.  However, it might have been something more local or from a neighboring country.   

Groceries here carry a lot of condiments from the UK.  I think I have a bit of experimentation to do. Ah, the tribulations of solving mysteries! 8)

Have you tried contacting the tour company to find out what it is?

Hmmmmm

Look up Haywards spreadable piccalilli and see if it was something like that.
