We’ve had our crop of cherry peppers from the backyard garden pickling in the refrigerator for a couple weeks now, and decided that it was high time we stuffed them with something to make them even more delicious.
Prosciutto-and-provolone-stuffed cherry peppers sounded like a good idea.
We didn’t want to break the bank with this project, so we picked up a good-sized piece of sharp provolone from DiBartolo’s for $6.95 a pound. Jimmy DiBartolo also gave PieHole some guidance on oil to use for our project, suggesting we try an olive pomace oil that he had priced at $10 for three liters.
On the way home, we stopped off at Citarella’s for a few slices of prosciutto, and put out a call to our neighborhood group on Facebook to see if anyone was around to help. In under an hour, with some help from neighbor Marc Dostie, we had an enormous bowl of stuffed cherry peppers marinating in oil.
