Pepper Shooters

Vigorous plants bear a profuse amount of deep green, flattened, globe-shaped peppers that ripen to cherry red.  Mature peppers have moderate heat with sweet undertones.  The 1½ inch fleshy peppers are good for pickling and preserving and is the pepper considered the best use for Pepper Shooters.  A great appetizer, Pepper Shooters are like an antipasto platter in a bite.  There are many variations for creating this delicious bite.  Try this easy version: Cut tops of 24 pepper and remove seeds.  Combine 4oz finely chopped fresh mozzarella or provolone, 3 oz chopped salami or prosciutto, 3T pesto.  Stuff into peppers. Drizzle olive oil over top of peppers, sprinkle with Italian Seasoning.  Refrigerate before serving.
