One of my favorite snacks between lunch and dinner is hot cherry peppers stuffed with prosciutto and provolone cheese. My mouth is watering just thinking about the savory, sharp explosion of flavor you get from chowing those beautiful creations. You know what's even better? Fresh ones. If you hurry, you can buy jars of fresh stuffed cherry peppers, hand-made by Masters of the craft, in Waterbury.

15 minutes ago, my friends at D'Amelio's Italian Eatery, at 718 Highland Ave in Waterbury, posted this to their social media account:

Oh, I'll say more. I've been eating the D'Amelio's peppers since the 80's, and I've eaten thousands from others since. D'Amelio's makes the best fresh stuffed cherry peppers that you will ever have. Look at them. These aren't the stank peppers that you see in jars on the shelves at your local supermarket, or online. For example:

Don't get me wrong, I'll eat the hell out of those too, but I've gone into so many deli's around Connecticut that sell stuffed cherry peppers that have been sitting in their cases for weeks, if not months.

Not here, right now, in Waterbury, at D'Amelio's on Highland Ave, or at Noochie's Deli & Cafe at 72 America Street. Think about it, these beautiful D'Amelio stuffed cherry peppers could be the Crown Jewels of your next charcuterie board. Make the trip to Waterbury, grab a jar of peppers, and a Classic D'Amelio grinder from Noochie's. The best.
