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.
