To make the charcuterie board, you will simply follow these easy steps:
1: Lay out all your supplies including all the food and serving ware. Some people prefer to separate the food by color when laying the items out whereas others may prefer to sort it by food group. It’s honestly whatever is easiest for you to envision the finished board. For the board itself, I recommend getting a larger one such as THIS.
2: For some of the food items such as the olives and raspberries, I like to place them in small dishes such as this ramekin and this smaller square bowl. For the syrups and honey, I use this smaller ramekin for placement on the board. Now keep in mind that not everything needs to go in a bowl. You want to fill all the space on your charcuterie board.
3: Now it’s time to start placing the items. For me personally, I like to start with the different cheeses since there are usually 4-8 different types of cheese on the board itself. Then I add on some of the crackers/pretzels followed by the prosciutto and salami. Next you’ll place some of the fruit followed by more crackers and the different hummus.
4: Continue adding items until you have completely filled the board. Remember there is no set way you have to display the items. It is completely up to you, and you can rearrange the food however you choose. For an added touch, you can always throw on some festive holiday decorations to spruce the board up even a little more. It’s just a fun addition people love!
Whether it be the upcoming holidays with family or game night with friends, I guarantee your charcuterie board will be a huge hit. Boar’s Head products make them easy to throw together for everyone to enjoy. I’d love for you all to tag me when making your own charcuterie board so I can see all of your different creations. Happy holidays!
