I have made this many times through the years and it is great to have on hand. It mellows with age, as all cheese spreads/dips/dunks/balls do. I am not a fan of the classic cheese ball. Not how a cheese ball tastes, how it looks after a few folks have had a knife swipe at it. Pretty and then immediately messy. Potted cheese presentation eliminates all that. For this batch I simply pressed it into one of the old fashioned refrigerator pans, put a date label on it and that was it. There it sits waiting to be served.

adapted through the years, recipe most likely found in a magazine, source now forgotten, but thanked.

3 T dry white wine
1 t mustard
1 dash hot pepper sauce - shake the bottle well and give it a definite dash of flavor!

To make sure this was "sealed" I used a double thickness of wax paper as a gasket.
This is delicious on crackers and in celery, this was a given.Is there a better match than cheese and crackers or bread?
But this is also wonderful to place a small dollop on a saute'd chicken breast or thigh and let it melt into a delicious sauce.
Serve with crisp and tart apple slices.
Individual balls ( about 1 Tablespoon ) of this can be rolled in toasted pecans, etc and used to dress an appetizer tray or plate.
