Pimentos are sweet, succulent, aromatic, and one of our favorites! Fresh from the garden they can be used as the filling inside green olives, in the making of pimiento cheese and stuffed to be served as an appetizer. An easy way to serve them is cut off the top of the pepper and remove the seeds. Stuff with a bit of fresh mozzarella and brush with olive oil. Grill until the peppers begin to soften and the cheese starts to melt.
