‘Jarcuterie’ Is Your Own Personal Charcuterie Board For Optimal Snacking

Is it just me, or does it seem like charcuterie boards are all the rage right now? I mean, I’m not complaining – a tray full of salty snacks is basically my idea of heaven, but they’re definitely having a moment right now. However, for those who live alone, you might find a full charcuterie board offers up a bit too much in the snacking department. That’s where ‘jarcuterie’ comes in!

  1. Jarcuterie is your own personal charcuterie board. It’s exactly what it sounds like: a jar of any kind full of all the yummy treats you’d find on a normal charcuterie board, just in a smaller size meant for one person. In other words, it’s perfection.
  2. You can put so much stuff in these! The great thing about jarcuterie is that depending on the size of your jar, you could basically fit a whole charcuterie board’s worth of stuff in there if you really wanted. I’m talking pickles, olives, meat, cheese, fruit… the list goes on and on!
  3. These would make great party snacks! When it’s finally safe to have get-togethers with our loved ones again, just think how adorable jarcuterie would be at your next party! People could grab their jar and mingle around the place without ever having to be away from the snack table. It’s genius!
  4. Feel free to get creative here! If you don’t happen to have any jars, you could always use plastic or paper cups to fill with your charcuterie board goodness. Also, if your jar or cup is really deep, consider using toothpicks so that you don’t lose any deliciousness down the bottom. Trust me, you’ll thank me later!
