The Art of the Charcuterie Board
Posted on 20 July 2017
Whether you’re serving hor d'oeuvres or passed apps, we have so many ways to make your offerings leaner and full of flavor. First, build a Charcuterie Board with your favorite cheeses, jams, pickled vegetables and of course, bison. We love slicing Landjaeger, a semi-dried spiced bison sausage, because it’s a protein-packed snack without nitrates or nitrites. It goes well with mustard and Epic pickles (available in our Farm Store) and can even be enjoyed on top of a baguette with your preferred fixings. We also suggest serving Ring Bologna, Teriyaki Snack Sticks and Hot Snack Sticks-- both bison, of course-- because they pair well with cheese, bread and even local honey. To make it easy, we've created the Bison Charcuterie Package to ensure you have all the meat you need for your board.
To make your Charcuterie Board really pop, you’ll want to incorporate various colors and heights. For example, using a wooden board and adding bay leafs will give a great green base and will break up the beige and brown colors. Depending on the time of year, fruit is a great addition, so add grapes or clementines to vary the colors. Next, you’ll want to play with different heights so the board is multi dimensional. We love using Baton Sales from Misteka Foods because besides from providing height, they taste savory with mustard, honey or alone.
