¼ cup Lemon Juice
Instructions for American Cheese:
Add cashews and blend thoroughly. Add remaining ingredients. Blend until mixture is the consistency of a creamy sauce, with no bits of pimento visible. Pour into a 1 qt. mold and cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate overnight before serving. After firming in the refrigerator, this cheese may be frozen until needed. Makes 1 qt.
NOTE: If you have a smaller blender, you may have to make half of this recipe at a time.
