As far as speeding up the process, the one thing I've found is that if I
want to make STC in a camp setting, I usually soften the butter and cheese,
and toss everything in my Kitchenaid at home and give it a good beating -
this "pre-homogenizes" everything - and stick it in a ziplock. When I
actually heat it up, having everything premixed means MUCH less stirring and
quicker melting. Just a helpful hint...
