Move Over, Charcuterie Chalets: Jarcuterie Is the Next Big Thing

Small canning jars are filled with the elements of a charcuterie platter.

Let’s be honest: charcuterie chalets were fun, but they weren’t exactly the most practical for cheese boards. Enter jarcuterie, the internet’s latest charcuterie obsession that’s actually pretty genius (and just as cute as those chalets).

What is jarcuterie? Well, it’s basically exactly what it sounds like: charcuterie in a jar. The idea takes all the elements of a charcuterie board (cheese, meats, fruits, and crackers), and puts them in a glass Mason or canning jar. This means you can actually carry your meal around with you.

It’s basically the perfect mini appetizer to take on the go. According to EatingWell, the creations have grown in popularity. They were perfected by Sarah Juenemann, who runs Grazing KC, a “hand-crafted charcuterie board and table company” based in Kansas City, Mo.

If you head over to Grazing KC’s Instagram, you’ll find several different iterations of this trendy food creation.
