When visiting Seattle we had a chance to try jamon iberco. That led us to a place locally that we tried jamon serrano and more iberco. Hence, we went on the hunt to find a place we could buy it to use at home. Central Market had the items we were looking for that inspired this Winter Charcuterie Board.
Charcuterie board ingredients can vary depending on the style of board you plan to make. Therefore you can see here that I paired the salami to the English cheddar that mixes perfectly with the strawberries. Additionally, I added a Parmesan reggiano that pairs well with the aged prosciutto.
Hence, your charcuterie board meats should pair well with the cheeses and the fruit that is used. For instance, an opal apple is seasonal but pairs well with the jamon serrano. Taste testing is the perfect way to learn how to assemble a charcuterie platter.
These charcuterie boards are perfect for wine and cheese party appetizers. Additionally this winter charcuterie board is fabulous for date nights and winter parties. For example, see that there is red holiday grapes, opal apples, and strawberries for a hint of the winter season.
Lastly, I buy baguette bread, slice, and toast it myself with unsalted butter and fresh garlic. I hope to do more of these charcuterie boards in the future to share with you. Look for a valentine’s board coming soon!Print
