Who says that charcuterie boards are only reserved for fancy dinner parties? There’s no reason that you can’t enjoy the meat and cheese spread whenever your heart desires. However, if your household doesn’t have a whole bunch of people, it might not make sense to make a huge charcuterie board for a couple of people. That’s where Mason jar charcuterie, aka “jarcuterie,” comes in.

The idea behind the jarcuterie is to have a personal charcuterie board to yourself. You get the meats, cheese, bread, olives, gherkins and fruit all in one, so there’s no need to pick at a board — avoiding this technique seems especially appropriate during pandemic times. So when the time comes that we can host over-the-top parties again, these will make the perfect addition to the appetizer spread.

The trend has started sparking this year as popular Instagram accounts have been showing their jarcuterie creations. It appears that the secret to the perfect jarcuterie is having different levels of height. Don’t be afraid to put some ingredients on skewers to prevent them from falling to the bottom.

No Mason jar? No problem! To save yourself from dishes, you can certainly use clear plastic or paper cups instead of the jars. Plus, it makes much more sense if you’re making them for a group of people. Whether you’re creating one for yourself or a bunch for a gathering, the jarcuterie inspiration below will get those wheels turning.
