How to Make Jarcuterie for Snacking

Take everything you know about charcuterie and put it into a single-serve, portable jar. 

Here’s our step-by-step guide to building solo charcuterie that’s tasty, fun, and easy!


Step 1:

Pick your jar! Choose a jar or small bowl that’s small enough to easily carry, but not so small that you’ll have a hard time fitting a variety of different foods in it. Fill it about two-thirds of the way full with nuts, grapes, dried fruit, or cubes of cheese. 

Step 2:

Add crackers. Or breadsticks, or flatbread or pretzel sticks. Something crisp that’s a tasty base for what comes next. 

Step 3:

Next come the cheese slices. A semi-hard cheese like Manchego works well. 

Step 4:

Fill in the gaps. Tuck in additional cheese, dried fruit, fresh fruit, chocolate, or nuts.

Step 5:

Add 1–2 skewers per jar. Stack up meat, cheese, olives, pickles, fruit—you have nearly endless options.

Step 6:

Garnish for just a little extra flair. Try a sprig of a fresh herb like rosemary, thyme, or sage.

Step 7:

Enjoy with your beverage of choice. Individual bottles are a nice addition.
