Pub Cheese (cheddar cheese spread)

So did you know you can actually make "pub cheese" pretty easily?

I did yesterday - 1 pound shredded good cheddar (shred it, don't buy shredded, because of the additives!), about 6 ounces shredded Dubliner. One cube frozen crushed garlic (or one clove through a garlic press), one spoonful good mustard .... then start drizzling in a bit of apple cider and/or beer and running all the ingredients in the food processor until smooth! It was really good. I think I ended up using about 3/4 cup of liquid, using half cider, half stout. Definitely a recipe that needs a full size food processor.

Here's what it looked like right before processing: 

It was spectacular.   My four year old kept begging for just one more crackerful.   It would be excellent with soft pretzel nuggets too.
