As we continue to navigate the challenges presented by the pandemic, the desire to have safe gatherings is still on our minds The pre-pandemic potluck spreads with their casseroles, pots of soup, and other shared dishes seem to lack the usual appeal. Thankfully, avoiding shared plates of food doesn’t necessarily mean saying goodbye to the charcuterie board. Thanks to this fun, single-serving spin on the classic, known as “jarcuterie”, you can serve up all of your favorite trappings of a traditional charcuterie platter at your next COVID-safe gathering. You’ll find some of our favorite jarcuterie fodder in the weekly sale from May 19th – 25th, including local Maplebrook Farm Ciliegine, so grab some skewers, a few jars, and get your jarcuterie on!
Create a skewer for each jar containing alternating tomatoes, fresh basil, and Maplebrook Farm Ciliegine. Create a skewer for each jar alternating the fresh fruits, then create another alternating cured meats and olives. Add a few pretzel rods or crackers, pickles, and a few fresh veggies such as carrot sticks and/or celery to each jar. Chill until ready to serve.
