Hidden Pleasures of Pepperoncini

Pepperoncini is one of those Italian, Greek and Eastern European peppers that are very popular in their homelands. However they are not commonly used in the United States except as a whole chile added to an antipasti or pickled in vinegar in commercially packaged jars.
