Oh man, oxtails (oxtail stew) was one of the best winter dishes we used to make when I was a kid. Oxtails and homemade bread, fresh out of the oven.
I know ... not something "found in bins, crocks and jars" ... but it gets one to thinkin. Pickled hocks are found in jars at bars ... why not oxtails?

Yeah. Any low grade meat that can be used in "competetion" to make BBQ or chili and anything used for trendy dishes has tripled in recent years. Local fish here in the Tampa bay area gives me major sticker shock. why the hell should I be paying $23 a pound for stuff that was caught 20 miles away?

I saw pot roast (not organic either) a couple months ago at kroger for over $12 a pound ... $12 a pound !!! I almost went and asked if it was a mis-mark. Recently, chicken that was 1.79 a pound, mysteriously and suddenly at 3.79/lb.
Absolutely obscene.
And just wait til the climate change really hits food production ...
It's getting to ...


(you have to have seen the movie to get the implication of the scene)

Back to On-Topic ..... another bar snack ... Kri-Kri. Common as "Japanese KriKri" but is extremely popular in the Middle East, Far East and Europe.

A bit like eating beer-nuts while drinking. And all sorts of variations ... wasabi ... hot etc etc. Awesome stuff.

Basically peanuts, mixed nuts etc battered in a sugar/rice flour/coconut milk/sesame batter and deep fried. Very addicting.

Found in crocks & jars ...
Cherry Pepper Shooters



Though most commonly found at Italian deli's ... still qualifies as a bar food and can be made a home.

Cherry Pepper Shooters ... aka Peperoncini Ripieni.



Cherry (pepper) Shooters are cherry peppers about the size of small ping-pong balls with the seeds taken out and then stuffed with Italian lunchmeat like capicola and a cheese like smoked provalone, and then partially covered with extra-virgin olive oil.

Unbelievably good, they really have to be tried ... a giant hit.

They can be stuffed with all sorts of things ... my favorite recipe is the following ...

The peppers I use are Mezzetta ...


Here’s the recipe ..

Cherry Pepper Shooters
12 – 16 Marinated cherry peppers
1/2 Lb. smoked or sharp Provolone cheese
4 – 6 Slices prosciutto (approximately 1/8 Lb.)
Olive Oil (EVOO)
1 Large clove garlic, peeled and sliced

Rinse the cherry peppers under running water. With a paring knife, remove the stems. Using a melon-baller, knife or small spoon, remove the seeds and ribs.

Cut the provolone into cubes small enough to fit into the cherry peppers. Wrap each piece of cheese with a thin ribbon of prosciutto. Stuff one into each pepper.

Place the peppers in a clean glass jar, distributing the garlic as you go. Fill the jar with enough olive oil that has had just a bit of salt and pepper added to it, to cover the peppers.
Let sit overnight before serving.

Goes great with wine, beer and (I think) a double scotch.

I remember when my wife used to like getting cherry peppers with her steak at Brown Derby by the airport in Cleveland.
