Instructions

Jarcuterie Prep

  • Cut your vegetables, fruit & cheeses and lay out on one large board or platter with all other ingredients before you begin building your Spring Jarcuterie board.

SPRING Word Fruit Kebabs, Flower-shaped Cheese & Berry Skewers

  • Use your mini fruit/veg cutters to spell S-P-R-I-N-G, alternating between the cantaloupe & honey dew. You could also spell things like EASTER or your child's name for their BIRTHDAY!
    Take your skewer, and add bocconcini, basil, your fruit word, basil, then another bocconcini!
    Spring Word Food Kebabs for Jarcuterie
  • Take your sliced or unwrapped cheese + English cucumber slices & cut out flowers with a food cutter. Skewer the cauliflower, cheese + cucumber flowers & radish on a stick (*NOTE: you may need to cut the skewers shorter to fit nicely in your jars*).
  • Add your favourite berries to another skewer in whatever pattern you fancy. We made ours starting with a raspberry, then 3 blueberries & finished with a red grape (which is hard to see in the image because it's at the bottom of the jar).

Cured Meats & Condiments Skewers

  • Fan the salami & prosciutto, then skewer with your mini figs & top with a large green olive or Cornichons.

How to Build Your Spring Love Jarcuterie Board

  • *Optional: add adhesive jute to the outside of each jar by premeasuring the length to fit around the circumference & then doing a rolling stick-on.

  • Add your no shell pistachios or nut-free pretzels to the base of each jar. Then, add your pre-made meat, cheese, veg & fruit skewers/kebabs (*I added the SPRING word kebab last to keep it at the front*). Finally, add loose foods - cucumber, peppers, bread sticks, flatbreads, green garnish - staggering & playing around with them until you like where they land. Pop in your favourite Spring flower for added elegance! That's it! Fun, right?! Enjoy these Spring Love Jarcuterie Board appetizers!
