How To Make A Jarcuterie
Making these cute individual charcuterie jars is super simple. And I picked up all of the ingredients from Trader Joe’s!
I’ll list all the items I shopped for these jarcuteries for you below in a handy shopping list.
Individual Charcuterie Ingredients
Here is everything you need to assemble some jarcuteries for your next party.
- Cheese Stick Breadstick
- Parmesan Crisps
- Fig & Olive Crisps
- Mini Brie Bites
- Manchego Cheese
- Mini Mozzarella Balls
- Grape Tomatoes
- Nuts (almonds & Pistachios)
- Berries (raspberries & blackberries)
- Rosemary Sprigs
- Appetizer Skewers or toothpicks
- 4 oz. Mini Mason Jars
Cut cheese into wedges, fold salami into fourths and place a few pieces on an appetizer skewer or toothpick. Rinse and dry the mozzarella and thread onto toothpicks alternating with tomatoes.
With all the ingredients above you can make about 15 individual charcuterie jars. Feel free to vary the ingredients in each jar.
I think making each jar unique allows your guests to pick one that appeals to them most. And it also allows you to create jars that take into account dairy, nut gluten, or other food allergies.
How To Assemble Charcuterie Jars
Using small 4 ounce mason jars, place some nuts at the bottom of the jar (if using). This will take up some space and is a nice filler (and snack) for the bottom of the jar.
Next, start layering in the larger items like cheese wedges and crackers. Place the items with the ends sticking out. Garnish with fresh berries, more nuts and a sprig of rosemary.
You can store these individual charcuterie jars in the fridge for up 6 hours before serving. I love a good make-ahead recipe, don’t you?!
So, what do you think of my latest obsession? I can’t get enough of these individual charcuterie jars. If you stop by my house for happy hour don’t be surprised if you are served one of these cute jarcuteries!
