The Goose Gang Guide: staff picks on what's honking hot this week (Paul)

Paul doesn't know Jack...but he does know that the pepper jars that bear his name are a seasonal treat not to be missed.

Spiked with cauliflower, carrots, green tomatoes, garlic, and herbs, these hot Hungarian peppers are tart and crunchy with a gentle heat. They're delicious in salads and over soups or simply sliced on brown bread slathered with butter next to a pint or two.

Paul especially likes 'em sliced with eggs for breakfast (whether his day includes mongering at the Goose or throwing clay for his family's gallery in Nashville).

And since Hunky Jack's son Dave only jars these peppers while they're fresh, the supply only lasts as long as the pepper season provides. Come in quick!

More on Hunky Jack's
"My father, Jack Rogers, grew up on the west side of Indianapolis near Haughville, which at that time was a community of Slovenian immigrants. Through his friendships with these unique people he was able to learn this secret recipe from the 'Old County.'

Dad became famous for providing corner taverns (there were lots of corners in those days) with gallons and quarts of his specially prepared hot Hungarian peppers, earning him the nickname 'Hunky Jack.'" ~ Dave Rogers
