  1. Slice the tops off of the cherry peppers and carefully remove the seeds, keeping peppers whole. Wrap a cube of cheese with prosciutto, and stuff into a pepper. If there is still room inside the pepper, stuff in more prosciutto. Repeat with remaining peppers.
  2. Place all of the stuffed peppers into a 1 quart jar - or one that your peppers will all fit into, and sprinkle salt over them. Pour in enough olive oil to cover the peppers. Cover, and let stand for 1 hour before eating. Refrigerate leftovers.

Delicious and very spicy! The peppers I bought may have been small, but I had a lot of prosciutto and provolone leftover.

I used hard salami and a little vinegar with the olive oil, I just like that combination. Also, just oil appeared to be a little much.

I wish everyone would try these!! I make them every week and keep them in the fridge to snack on whenever I want. Much cheaper to make them yourself than to purchase the premaid poppers at the...

These are the best! find the best cheese possible and enjoy! But be warned, they are addictive.
