The holidays are around the corner and a charcuterie board is a great way to display amazing cheeses, meats, crackers and sweet items. They are great for special occasions or just fun as an appetizer before dinner. I am calling this a Southern Style Charcuterie Board because I used some of my favorite products that are made in North Carolina. I adore being from the South and love to highlight some of the amazing food products that are made there.
In order to make a charcuterie board, you only need some creativity, a large cutting board or cheese board and some of your favorite cheeses, smoked meats, crackers and some sweet and savory items to pair it with.
The charcuterie board also features Spilling the Sweet Tea's raspberry preserves and our new arrival...Blackberry Jam. The blackberry jam is AH-MAZING paired with goat cheese, while our raspberry jam is delicious paired with brie cheese. Listed below are all the items on my Southern Style Charcuterie Board and where they were purchased. If you plan to make one over the holiday season, tag me in your picture (@spilling_the_sweet_tea) on Instagram. I would love to see how yours came out.
