I am salivating reading this recipe. First, a little background. This recipe comes to us from an Amish woman in Union Grove, North Carolina. This is a very progressive community and one of the few in the Tarheel State. The community is very open and welcoming to outsiders and while it is a horse and buggy community, they do permit limited electricity in homes (hence this recipe using a food processor in the instructions).
The woman did not provide any serving suggestions for this, but I would assume you just use it in place of regular Miracle Whip (but this looks 10 X better). So if you use Miracle Whip as a sandwich spread, you could use this instead. Or in salads. Also, the recipe says to pour into glass jars, seal and refrigerate but I can't really think of a reason why you couldn't just store it in a Tupperware bowl or something like that.
