A Charcuterie board is an assortment of foods that when carefully paired and styled up on a serving board make a beautiful and delicious appetizer. Charcuterie boards have been on the menus of high-end restaurants for ages but have become very hipster in the last few years.
If this is something that you would like to prepare at home you can find plenty of recommendations for building your own charcuterie board using commercially produced foods. Or, for the overachievers out there – how about preserving some of the items at home? With reliable research-based resources you can safely preserve a variety of foods at home, that when paired together, make up a proper charcuterie board.
Here is what you need:
A food grade serving platter (wood is perfect) and a variety of the following:
Jams and Jellies
Crackers or bread
And here is how you do it! Make sure to plan in advance because some of the foods need substantial time to prepare.
