Take everything you know about charcuterie and put it into a single-serve, portable jar.
Here’s our step-by-step guide to building solo charcuterie that’s tasty, fun, and easy!
Pick your jar! Choose a jar or small bowl that’s small enough to easily carry, but not so small that you’ll have a hard time fitting a variety of different foods in it. Fill it about two-thirds of the way full with nuts, grapes, dried fruit, or cubes of cheese.
Add crackers. Or breadsticks, or flatbread or pretzel sticks. Something crisp that’s a tasty base for what comes next.
Next come the cheese slices. A semi-hard cheese like Manchego works well.
Fill in the gaps. Tuck in additional cheese, dried fruit, fresh fruit, chocolate, or nuts.
Add 1–2 skewers per jar. Stack up meat, cheese, olives, pickles, fruit—you have nearly endless options.
Garnish for just a little extra flair. Try a sprig of a fresh herb like rosemary, thyme, or sage.
Enjoy with your beverage of choice. Individual bottles are a nice addition.

This is my favorite new trend. I’m really glad you blogged about it so I can share it on my business page and with my friends :). I also like adding mini jars of local honey which can accent the salty sweet combo.
Awesome idea . I also like honey and golden pepper 🌶 jelly
sounds yummy! great summer time snack! everyone makes there own! You can use whatever you want! 🙂
It looks great .
I love this idea!!!
I love those little bowls and thank you for suggesting what to fill them with.
To prevent sliced apples from turning brown, soak them for a few minutes in a lemon-lime soft drink like Sprite or 7-up.
Great idea!! I’ve never heard of using the soda on apples.🥰
awesome I am going to try the soda, I have always used lemon juice
I’ve heard of this, but I’m scared it’s going to change the taste so drastically!
there is no taste change with sprite or 7 up. Lemon juice leave a smell and taste I think. Sprite is all I use for years.. Just did this with apple nacho tray for work and turned out great
This is a fantastic idea I love it.
It would be great for gathering of friends or small party’s.
fantastic!! can hardly wait to try this summer
That looks yummy and it also looks like fun!
road trip excitement…..we can make these for in the car and not be eating junk!
This idea is wonderful. Individual servings are such a good idea. A separate board for refills on the Lazy Susan is another great idea.
Great idea! I have the crinkle cutter and love it!
This sounds like a fun and unique way of entertaining.
These ideas are absolutely awesome, Cathy!
Awesome ideas. thanks.
I cannot wait to make these jarcurteries! They are so simple and loook very delightful!
Something to look forward to
What a great idea! I have several bowls that would work perfectly and I’ve saved this reminder so I won’t forget.
Jarcuterie? Where’s the jar?
I love snacking from a charcuterie. I think this jarcuterie would work for me!!
I love this idea using the Prep Bowl as a Jarcuterie is just perfect. The presentation is beautiful and they looks so cute👌
I love this idea!! Individual charcuterie AND the crinkle cutter😃. So festive& Healthy during these times😁
It would be helpful if this could be printed.
Copy and paste into a word document. Then Print.
I like that idea!
Looks fabulous! Love this 💚
So love these! I wonder if they would keep well in the fridge…. I’m thinking pre packaged snacks!
Looks delicious, will have to buy, so I can make them. And would also work for my daughter after school snack
Thank You for the ideas! I have been so lost when it comes to the artistic flair !
These will help fuel my new charcuterie passion. What a great idea!
Fabulous idea I gave these boards to 6 families from cHurch. Looking for proper boards was fun and filling them more so.
The glasses are so great and small for fathers day.
