Holiday Cheese Log
Cheese log will keep for weeks if tightly wrapped and refrigerated. Serve with a knife for slicing or spreading with crackers, toast rounds or sliced apple.
1 pound sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 pound jack cheese, grated
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon celery salt
2 Tablespoons sherry or apple juice
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
Mix ingredients together thoroughly (except for chopped nuts) and place on a piece of wax paper.
Roll cheese into a log shape about 1 1/2 inches thick.
Close wax paper and chill one hour to firm.
Spread nuts on another piece of waxpaper and roll cheese over the nuts, coating sides evenly.
Rewrap in waxpaper and chill overnight.

VARIATIONS: Roquefort or Bleu Cheese may be substituted for a portion of either jack or cheddar and garlic salt used in place of celery salt.
NOTE: If slicing apples, drop into a bowl of salted water and they won't turn dark.
