5 Tips On How To Make A Charcuterie Board
Tip 1: Use Paper Towel To Protect Your Hand
The metal maple leaf cookie cutter is a bit sharp. To protect your hand when you cut the leaf-shaped walnut bread, fold a small piece of paper towel and place it on top of the cookie cutter. That way you’re not directly pushing down on the cookie cutter.
Tip 2: Use Medium Or Hard Cheeses
When making the cheese leaves, stay away from soft cheese because it will turn into a mushy mess when you use the cookie cutter. It’s best to stick with medium and hard cheeses including cheddar, colby, jack, and swiss.
Tip 3: Save Time And Get Cheese Slices
Initially I was going to get a block of cheese and cut thin slices. I’m so glad that I came to my senses and bought cheese slices instead!
Tip 4: Don’t Forget The Mustard Sun!
My favorite part of this adorable charcuterie board is the Dijon mustard sun. After all, your tree needs to grow! In the photo, I filled an mini jam jar with mustard and threw in a baby spoon.
Tip 5: Have Fun And Ask Guests To Make Fun Appetizers With You
I don’t care how old you are; it’s always fun to play with your food. You can even get your guests to participate in the festivities by asking them to build this fun charcuterie board with you.
