This recipe was created by Jennie Carter Benedict, a cookbook author, caterer, and restaurateur. She operated a Louisville restaurant and tea room, Benedict's, in the early 20th century. I located this recipe on About.com presented by Diana Rattray, Southern Food Expert. It is also manufactured & can be found in a variety of Louisville grocery stores. Not sure, if available statewide. Often looked for at Derby time.This is one of my favorite spreads/dips!
