A Camping Charcuterie Board: Deliciously Different
Eat in Style on Your Next Outdoor Adventure
Charcuterie boards are not just for indoor parties and gatherings anymore. Nowadays, you can get portable with this fun food trend and take one on your next camping trip! With all the delicious meats, fruit, cheeses, and veggies, a charcuterie board brings a unique new element to camping that everyone will enjoy. You can get creative and really have fun with it, start with your favorites and take suggestions from your camping friends and family and see what you come up with. The great thing is, with all the variety out there the sky is the limit.
Meat Me in the Outdoors
For all the meat lovers, the is quite a variety of options. Originally charcuterie boards started with mostly dried meats, and those are still a big favorite, but you can also hit the deli for chilled sliced meats, that can be prepackaged and placed in your cooler. Both options will be a hit. You can include:
Don’t Forget the Cheese Please
No charcuterie board is complete without cheese. There are so many types, and again these can be pre-sliced or cubed, and bagged for your cooler. Try brie, cheddar, smoked gouda, parmigiano-reggiano, and provolone. You can also include spreadable cheeses such as Boursin, or Alouette.
Add Vibrant Color With Veggies
Brighten up your board with color from a plentitude of fruits and vegetables. You can include the more common celery or carrot, or liven things up even more with bell peppers, roasted peppers, hot peppers, cucumber slices or cherry tomatoes. Add some red and green grapes for a sweet bite. Refreshing and pretty to look at too, your fruit and vegetables will add that extra pop of color that brings it all together.
The Finishing Touches
Creativity is the key to this fun outdoor culinary adventure. Add things like crackers or naan, or condiments such as jams or stone ground mustard. Olives and pickles can add a tangy and zesty kick. Bring a favorite bottle of wine to pour next to the campfire as you enjoy your creation. The wonderful thing about a charcuterie board is that everything can be prepared ahead of time and all that has to be done at the campsite is to set the board up. Fun, unique, and memorable for the whole camping crew!
