I read the survey today and could not figure out what some of the food stuffs were, but Benedictine spread sounded interesting?
 
What is this Kentucky speciality?

Thank you, Mr. Hoffman.
I was thinking of the liqueur Benedectine, but thought, nay, that cannot be.  It is not an American southern speciality. Nor originate from those parts.
 
I am glad the link you sent me tells me why they got that name.

Sounds like American version of tzatziki sauce, substituting onion for garlic.

I voted for bourbon balls. I figured it would be an underdog...and I bet they are good and strong.

From the name, I thought it was made from some cheese ,made by benedictine monks or nuns,because that was the first thing  that came to mind.

Thanks for this link Michael! Some great variations for me to use, I make a olive spread and a shrimp spread that everyone asks me to make for various holidays but I like some of those better!
