A charcuterie board is a meat and cheese board, typically incorporating crackers, nuts and olives. It is a great appetizer for a long day of celebrating a holiday like Thanksgiving, because people can graze as the food cooks all day.
Let’s get started!
6 Easy tips For Making a Charcuterie Board
01Use at least 3 types of cheese
02Incorporate fresh fruits/veggies
03Add briny foods
04Don't forget cured meats!
05Add crackers last!
06Add a sweet item or two
Begin by placing cheese & meat on your board. Choose a soft and hard cheese, as well as a seasonal or flavored cheese, such as this cranberry goat cheese.
Next, add in fresh fruits. For a Fall board, figs, persimmons, pomegranates and clementines would all be wonderful additions. The fresh fruit helps to offset the saltiness of the cheese & meat, and cleanses the palate.
